Our Mission 

The Hiatt Career Center supports Brandeis undergraduate students and alumni in developing the skills to transform their unique backgrounds, liberal arts education and experiential learning into meaningful professional futures and relationships. We help students identify who they are, what they want and how to get there. 

Our Approach

  • Modern services for modern careers: The world of work is ever-evolving, and our award-winning practices are grounded in teaching flexibility around career planning and decision-making for today and tomorrow's workforce.
  • Life-long skills: Students are at the center of our mission, and our goal is to enhance their experience by helping them create and develop career-ready skills for a lifetime of meaningful work. 
  • Career everywhere: With career success at the core of the Brandeis mission, we collaborate and create partnerships through the Hiatt ecosystem model across campus to better support students in their career education and development.  
  • Commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion: Hiatt is committed to building a space that is all-inclusive, welcoming, and free from bias and discrimination. We support students in considering how intersecting identities impact their work and professional development.
