Sad news about former Brandeis President Evelyn E. Handler
Dear Members of the Brandeis Community:
It is with great sadness, particularly during this holiday season, that we write to let you know that former Brandeis President Evelyn E. Handler died Friday night after being struck by a car in Bedford, N.H.
Evelyn Handler served as Brandeis president from 1983 to 1991. She was the first and only woman to lead the University. During her tenure as president, Brandeis was admitted to the Association of American Universities, a significant distinction for such a young institution. Her other notable achievements included strengthening the University’s life sciences programs, initiating the Volen Center for Complex Systems, and the University’s membership in the University Athletic Association.
On behalf of the entire Brandeis community, we extend our deepest sympathies to the Handler family.
Frederick M. Lawrence, President
Malcolm L. Sherman, Chairman of the Board
