An Interdisciplinary Vision

By sponsoring or facilitating new interdisciplinary courses, lectures, seminars, films, conferences, and other events, the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel Center for the Humanities (MCH) helps students and faculty explore major themes of human experience. Through their participation in MCH events and programming, Brandeis students and faculty from all parts of campus become more informed, engaged and humane citizens of the world.
