About Yale Drama Coalition

Mission Statement

The Yale Drama Coalition (YDC), an umbrella organization for undergraduate theater, was founded in 1999 to foster a union of student voices impassioned by theater at Yale. 

The YDC’s core values include:
  • Facilitating access into the sphere of undergraduate theater, 
  • Strengthening a sense of community among theatermakers, and 
  • Promoting fairness and openness within that community.
The YDC Board works with Yale administration to meet the needs of the theater community, in addition to programming events that enrich theatrical life on campus and reflect the organization’s core values.
The organization has an open membership and invites input and participation from all interested Yale students. Roughly 650 undergraduates will be actively involved with YDC activities each year.
