It is an honor to serve Brandeis University as the Interim Chief Diversity Officer and Vice President of the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Brandeis has distinguished itself as a university dedicated to the highest educational standards for the pursuit of knowledge, the advancement of science and the belief in the centrality of ethics.

From its inception as a secular institution founded by the American Jewish community, and committed to serving all academically-qualified individuals no matter their diverse background or identity, Brandeis University has stood for the propositions of social justice and equality.

With a history founded on the principles of social justice, Brandeis endeavors to align our campus reality with the lofty goals of inclusive excellence. While there is always work to do, we believe that perseverance on behalf of justice provides a formula for continual improvement.

Brandeis University solicits the talents, skills, and contributions of all people and proudly offers an environment that welcomes and celebrates diversity in all its forms, across identity and circumstance. Brandeis is a wonderful place to study, work, research and teach and we invite you to be a part of this family of excellence.

Welcome, to the Brandeis experience!
