Support Us

The Department of African and African American Studies (AAAS) is at the beginning of an exciting period of expansion and reinvention. We have begun growing the size of our faculty, increasing the number of AAAS majors and minors, strengthening ties with alumni and developing a dynamic range of programs to enhance the study of peoples of African descent within the Brandeis community and beyond. AAAS has also added many exciting courses through the hiring of new faculty and professors.

The assistance of AAAS alumni and friends will be crucial to our immediate and long-term success. Your investment will ensure that AAAS has the resources to sustain our success and build upon it for the future. We welcome donations to support the department in the following categories:

  • General Programming Fund supports the development of our exciting yearly programming.
  • Faculty Research Fund provides assistance to AAAS faculty for research-related expenses.
  • Student Expense Fund</strong provides limited funds to AAAS majors in need of immediate financial assistance for class-related expenses.
