About the Program

Each year, four students with strong leadership skills and a demonstrated commitment to community engagement will be selected by the Department of Community Service (DCS) to serve as Ambassadors within the Community Engagement Ambassador Program (CEAP).

Community Engagement Ambassadors will receive a $1,000 stipend in the fall semester and a $1,000 stipend in the spring semester (total of $2,000 stipend). Each Ambassador will contribute eight hours to the role each week during the academic year. As part of a prestigious leadership cohort, these Ambassadors will work with DCS staff to build the capacity of all Brandeis community service clubs.

Program History


Lori LuftWhen Lori Levinson Luft ’69 and a small group of Brandeis friends created the Waltham Group in 1966, they sparked a movement at Brandeis that continues to inspire students today. Now fifty years later, Brandeis students annually provide over 40,000 hours of volunteer service through more than 40 community service clubs, founded and led by student leaders like Lori. Generously funded by her family, the Community Engagement Ambassador Program will engage talented Brandeis students whose passion for community service and values reflect those of Dr. Lori Levinson Luft ’69. Their work will honor Lori’s memory and be a fitting tribute to her remarkable contributions to Brandeis.
