The Community Life Committee (CLC)

What do we do:

The Community Life Committee (CLC) is a Standing Committee of the General Faculty of the Yale Divinity School. The mission of the CLC is to create a sense of belonging and cultivate community for the YDS students, staff and faculty. The CLC organizes monthly community events to create spaces for the YDS Community to gather and build relationships. In addition, the CLC is responsible for governing the Student Groups of the Yale Divinity School.

Who We Are:

The CLC is comprised of faculty members, administrators, and student representatives. Faculty members and administrators are appointed by the Dean, with the Associate Dean of Student Affairs serving as Co-Chair of the CLC. The other Co-Chair position is held by the CLC Student Coordinator. There are six additional students serving on CLC: The Associate CLC Student Coordinator, The All School Conference Coordinator, The YDSG President and three members of elected YDSG representatives.
