Dewey House for Community Engagement

About Dewey House

Shelburne Farms

Dewey House students live together in Harris Hall and enjoy access to a newly renovated common space. Students are committed to making a difference in their communities and work with local partners to do this in many ways on and off campus-- from one-time service opportunities as a group to individual longer-term advocacy projects. The Dewey House's faculty and staff support students in these experiences informally on a day-to-day basis, and formally, in one-credit Civic Engagement seminars each semester. We are guided by the following beliefs:

  • In order to thrive, our communities need us to be active and engaged citizens.
  • All of us have something to offer the world; probably many things.
  • Social change requires the intentional actions of individuals, groups, and communities.

Are you ready to step into this challenge?

Do you want to work within a group to discover your skills and interests and then share them with the world?

Do you want to make a difference?

If you answered "yes" to these questions, apply to join the Dewey House for Community Engagement!
