Dewey House for Community Engagement

The Dewey House for Community Engagement is a Residential Learning Community where students grow into active and engaged citizens while living and learning together on the first floor of Harris Hall. The Dewey House's faculty and staff support students in these experiences informally as mentors and in one-credit Civic Engagement seminars each semester. Students lead regular projects that address social issues such as hunger, poverty, health, and education. These transformative service-learning experiences foster reciprocity between students and community members. The Dewey House acts as students’ home base while living in Burlington and builds a sense of belonging for all members throughout their time at UVM

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.
