Dewey House for Community Engagement

Welcome!

The Dewey House is a residential learning community on the first floor of Harris Hall where students have the opportunity to create socially just change through service, learning, and leadership.

(We were formerly the Dewey House for Civic Engagement, and in the process of changing our name to the Dewey House for Community Engagement for Fall 2014 you may see us referred to as both.)

Live

...on the first floor of Harris Hall with fellow students who are passionate about making a difference! Enjoy the new Dewey Space and regular social programs that bring you together.

Serve

...in our communities! Trail repair, mentoring, eliminating bullying, or fighting hunger - these are just a few examples of the ways you can choose how to make a positive impact.

Learn

...about your strengths, get tools for creating social change, and take the lead on group and individual community projects in inspiring 1-credit service-learning seminars with support from dedicated faculty and staff!
