Brandeis Means Community
At Brandeis, we encourage our students to explore their passions, build close connections, and achieve great things. And it all starts with a supportive, close-knit community.

The Division of Student Affairs, along with partners and faculty across campus, offer a wide range of services and programs that maximize student potential, remove barriers to learning, and create a healthy and engaged community. We’re committed to providing an environment that sets our students up for success and well-being.

This Giving DEISday, we are asking parents and families to give in honor of the students, with 100% of gifts to The Parents Fund directed towards strengthening our campus and student community in these priority areas:

  • Student Well-Being: Resources and services that keep students safe and help them thrive, develop and make healthy choices.
  • Community Spaces: Provide welcoming and comfortable opportunities for students to gather and learn.
  • Student Leadership: Help students build connections and navigate the academic and social landscape of college.
  • Family Resources: Resources for families to help support their students throughout their Brandeis experience.

Today, your impact will be even greater! If we reach 350 parent gifts of any amount by the end of the day, it will unlock a $10,000 match from a generous Brandeis family.
