Our Mission

Dorm Crew is a campus services provider and first-year pre-orientation program that is entirely managed and operated by Harvard undergraduates. Through our programming, employment opportunities, and leadership development system, Dorm Crew advances Harvard College’s vision for a welcoming, supportive, and diverse community that cultivates rewarding and transformative student experiences while delivering core services to the University in a sustainable way.

  • Dorm Crew’s pre-orientation program, Fall Clean-Up, fosters opportunities for exchange and dialogue among students with a diversity of experiences and mentors first-year students during their transition to college. Our philosophy is that the bonds of community formed over shared work and accomplishment engender the empathy and openness that are foundational to a Harvard education.
  • Dorm Crew’s varied suite of campus services enables us to offer hundreds of meritocratic, flexible, and lucrative student employment opportunities throughout the year while simultaneously providing Harvard with essential support and services and contributing to a more sustainable campus.
  • Dorm Crew’s intensive leadership development program promotes collaboration, adaptability, and creative problem-solving while offering practical experience managing a diverse workforce, refining interpersonal communication skills, and developing personal leadership styles in order to prepare students for a variety of post-collegiate paths.
