Cosponsorship details

International Center
for Ethics, Justice, and Public Life cosponsors events related to the Center's core mission and themes, organized by Brandeis centers, departments, and student groups. The Center strives to stimulate thinking and discussion, valuing events that present a variety of viewpoints, rather than advocating for a particular point of view. Cosponsorship may mean publicizing to the Center community and/or providing financial support, typically up to $250.
