Deis Impact is hosted by the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and made possible by a generous grant from the Louis D. Brandeis Legacy Fund for Social Justice.

The Louis D. Brandeis Legacy Fund for Social Justice supports Brandeis students, enhances campus life, and promotes the issues of social justice that the former U.S. Supreme Court justice championed throughout his life. Since its establishment in 2006, the Legacy Fund has sponsored a series of initiatives designed to help students, enrich the University community, and address social justice concerns on and off campus.

The Legacy Fund was founded by Jules Bernstein ’57, and is funded in part by Bernstein and his wife, Linda Lipsett.
