Brandeis Students at the Mandel Center

Brandeis students participate in the center's work in several ways. Students who teach in area supplemental schools participate in the Undergraduate Fellows Program, which supports their professional development as Jewish educators.

Additionally, Brandeis undergraduate and graduate students participate in the Center's work as research assistants and student office workers.

In fall 2018, these undergraduates are working at the center:
