An Interdisciplinary Vision

The Mandel Center for the Humanities at Brandeis University was established by a generous gift from Jack, Joseph, Morton and Barbara Mandel in partnership with the Mandel Foundation.

The Mandel Center for the Humanities aims to deepen humanities scholarship at Brandeis through new curricular and research activities while strengthening students’ knowledge and critical thinking across multiple disciplines.
