Enriching the Student Experience

The Dean of Students Office supports the development of a student-directed community — a place where the student voice challenges and directs the shape of the institution. We know that to be effective in that role, students must have both opportunity and the skills to make it work.

One of the cornerstones of our community is to identify opportunities for students to learn and practice leadership. We support a variety of social, cultural and educational activities initiated and developed by individual students and student organizations, and within the residence halls. These activities extend the educational mission of Brandeis beyond the walls of the classroom and incorporate our core values: community, integrity, respect, civility, lifelong learning and embracing diversity.

Department of Community Service

The Department of Community Service is dedicated to providing students, faculty and staff with relevant volunteer experiences that match the needs of our neighbors, as well as the skills and interests of our student volunteers.

Department of Student Activities

The Department of Student Activities enhances the student experience, supports university clubs and organizations, and encourages creative learning and leadership development.

Department of Student Rights and Community Standards

The Department of Student Rights and Community Standards oversees the student conduct process, and educates the campus about issues central to the mission of the institution.
