The mission of Experiential Learning and Teaching at Brandeis is to help students learn from their experiences and to create experiences from which students will learn. 

This grant was established by Brian Saber '84 in 1993 in memory of his father, Richard Saber. The grant is awarded every fall to a Brandeis undergraduate to support a research project in the field of Women's and Gender Studies. The grant is designed to fund original research using the library, laboratory or community. The recipient will be asked to speak briefly about his or her research project at the WGS undergraduate commencement in May.

Global Brandeis compiles a variety of study/work abroad opportunities on their website.
