SEED Program

Founded on the principles of pluralism and inclusion, Brandeis University is a place where exceptional young minds from diverse backgrounds come together to form a unique and vibrant campus community. Our annual Students Exploring and Embracing Diversity (SEED) program celebrates multiculturalism and social justice at our dynamic university.

  • Meet distinguished faculty and current Brandeis student leaders 
  • Develop a comprehensive understanding of the college admissions process
  • Attend an evaluative admissions interview to support your application to Brandeis
  • Engage in cross-cultural, intersectional dialogue
  • Have parents and families join specialized sessions!
