2013-2014 Undergraduate Departmental Representatives

Meredith van der Walde '15


My name is Meredith van der Walde, and I am a junior with a double major in Sociology and Psychology and a minor in Social Justice and Social Policy. On campus I am a member of Adagio Dance Company, Tour Guide through the Undergraduate Admissions Office, Orientation Leader, and Student Caller for Brandeis’s Phonathon. I am extremely passionate about social justice and hope to pursue a career in law and/or nonprofit work after graduating from Brandeis. As a Sociology Undergraduate Departmental Representative, I hope to strengthen the relationship between the Sociology and the Social Justice and Social Policy departments, as well as raise awareness on campus about the opportunities that stem from majoring in Sociology. I am so excited to begin working as a UDR! If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me at
