Brandeis Precollege wraps up a powerful 2020 summer

By switching to an all-online format, Brandeis Precollege was able to successfully run its programs for summer 2020.

Brandeis Precollege attracted top-tier Brandeis faculty, staff, and teaching assistants this summer, including key leaders from the Heller School for Social Policy and Management. These instructors combined their strong pedagogical and engagement skills to create and lead a series of robust and compelling sessions for students.

Precollege is grateful to all that contributed to its success this summer – including Legacy Fund donor Jules Bernstein, Brandeis Admissions, the WGS Department at Brandeis, Kaplan University Partners, VHSLearning of Massachusetts, and Lynne Rosansky of the Rabb School at Brandeis. Thanks for helping us create an unforgettable summer of learning for teen leaders from the U.S. and all over the world.

We look forward to returning to our residential roots next summer!
