Community Based Learning
Community Based Learning is a Dwight Hall initiative that facilitate hands-on learning at Yale by connecting students, faculty, and community contacts. Community partners identify projects of research, analysis, or evaluation that support their missions, and these projects are matched to Yale courses. Students then complete these projects, generally instead of a traditional final evaluation (e.g., paper or exam).
We have many exciting plans to grow CBL this semester, including new and open leadership positions including Community Contact Lead, Institutionalization Lead, Course Lead, and Thesis Project Lead. Leads and members have opportunities to interact with the New Haven City Government, local nonprofits, Yale College Council, Dwight Hall, administration/faculty, and more, all while learning important negotiation and management skills. This is an opportunity to expand Yale students’ academic horizons--through a crucial program which we are among the last of the Ivies to implement--and simultaneously benefit the greater New Haven community. If you are at all interested, please contact email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
CCE, UWC, Title IX Board Applications
Deadline: Friday, October 14, 2016
Interested in becoming a CCE? The CCE mission is to create a more positive sexual climate on campus. The CCEs themselves are an exceptionally diverse, creative group of students who collaborate with each other and with their own communities to create space—both literally and figuratively—for students to more easily make mindful social and sexual choices. The CCEs also serve as a resource for students who have experienced or heard about sexual misconduct, providing a peer avenue to SHARE, the UWC, Title IX, and the Yale Police. Outside of training periods, the CCEs generally work 5-10 hours per week. They are paid employees of the YCDO. There’s no need for prior experience in sexual violence prevention. The prime qualification for being a CCE is the desire to make Yale a better place; optimism and humor are helpful, too!
Looking for other ways to get involved? The Undergraduate Title IX Advisory Board and the University-Wide Committee on Sexual Misconduct are both looking for a few more members.
