Resources for Students

Students studying in library

The Division of Student Affairs provides services and opportunities to students to enhance their personal, social and emotional growth and development.

The Dean of Students Office, the Brandeis Beacons and various leadership opportunities introduce students to resources that develop the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed as a Brandeis student, both on and off-campus.

Dean of Students Office

The Dean of Students Office serves the needs and interests of students and has broad responsibility for the services and activities that enhance the quality of student life outside the classroom. The office works directly with the departments of student activities, community service and student rights and community standards to assist students through academic, personal, safety and family concerns.

The Dean of Students Office can assist undergraduate students and their families during moments of challenge or crisis; connect with additional offices and personnel; and provide environments for lifelong learning inside and outside the classroom.

Brandeis Beacons

As the university's official student ambassadors, the Brandeis Beacons inspire Brandeis pride and spirit and help foster a culture of community among their fellow students and alumni.
