Transitional Year Program celebrates 40th anniversary
Brandeis’ Transitional Year Program (TYP) recently celebrated its 40th anniversary. TYP alumni and friends returned to campus to celebrate the achievements of TYP Scholars and their impact on the Brandeis community and the world beyond.
TYP is an integral part of the university’s enduring commitment to social justice. Founded in 1968, the TYP is a one-year academic program for students who have developed the skills for college success by practicing leadership in their life experiences. The TYP experience allows these students to learn about new possibilities for their lives, and to apply the focus, energy, tenacity, perseverance and maturity previously devoted to prevailing in the face of personal challenges, to now pursuing academic success.
