Celebration of Service

2019 Celebration of Service Medal Winners

2020 Celebration of Service Awards Ceremony

The 2020 Celebration of Service took on a new twist this year, as we celebrated virtually during National Volunteer Appreciation Week. Community Partners and Brandeis Community members, including campus administrators and student leaders, came together to honor all of the incredible service students engaged in over the past year and truly thank our volunteers for the positive impact they had on our local community, with the first ever Celebration of Service Video. In addition to the video, we highlighted the various accomplishments of our service clubs with several infographics that demonstrated the incredible impact they had this year. During National Volunteer Appreciation Week, we also celebrated the 2020 Commitment to Service Award Medalists. Over the course of their four years at Brandeis, our 53 Medalists (13 Gold, 16 Silver, & 24 Bronze) completed 32,876.57 hours of service and had a $836,051.175 economic impact for our local and global communities.

2021 Celebration of Service

At our Annual Celebration of Service, the Department of Community Service honors the hard work and service that all of our Brandeis members and partners have done during the year. We invite students, faculty, staff and partners who have engaged with the Waltham community to come share their stories, meet others involved in service, and celebrate our commitment to engaging our community.

Join us for the 2021 Commitment to Service awards ceremony, live music, delicious hors d’oeuvres, guest speakers and more. Kosher and vegetarian options will be available. We encourage all students to invite their faculty, staff, peers, and partners to celebration their dedication to our community. This is a truly wonderful event that marks an important tradition on our campus.

The Celebration of Service is co-sponsored by the Department of Community Service and the Waltham Group. The Commitment to Service medals are presented at the annual Celebration of Service event each April.
