The International Center for Ethics, Justice, and Public Life cosponsors selected events organized by Brandeis centers, departments, and student groups. Cosponsorship may mean publicizing to the Center community and/or providing financial support. Cosponsorship amounts are typically up to $250.
The Ethics Center cosponsors events related to its core mission and themes. These events reflect the guiding principles of the Ethics Center, emphasizing links between scholarship and practice, the influence of the arts, and connections to communities. The Center strives to stimulate thinking and discussion, valuing events that present a variety of viewpoints or invite consideration of a point of view, rather than advocate for a particular point of view.
It is critical for the success of your event that you allow for a MINIMUM of 7 days of publicity. Therefore, please be mindful of the deadlines listed below, allowing for at least 7 days between our response to your request and the day of the event.
Proposals are reviewed by a committee of faculty, staff, and students that meets monthly during the academic year.
Proposal deadlines for fall 2015 are:
Friday, October 2 by 11 am - for a response no later than Tuesday, October 13
Friday, December 4 by 11 am - for a response no later than Monday, December 14
Proposals may be submitted for either the fall or spring semester at any time.
*Please note: If you are planning an event for the first week of February, consider making it part of 'DEIS Impact (1/28-2/7/16). Proposal deadline Oct. 16, 2015; final event details due Nov. 9, 2015. More info and application here.
All publicity must list the International Center for Ethics, Justice and Public Life as a cosponsor (do not list the Center on publicity before you receive a response). Proposals need not have final details to be considered for funding, though proposals that are well thought through have an advantage.
