Community Emergency and Enhancement Fund

CEEF (Community Emergency and Enhancement Fund) serves two purposes. First, it serves as a source of emergency funding for student life on campus. Secondly, CEEF provides funding for student-led initiatives that enhance the Brandeis community. These initiatives must have a campus-wide benefit and long-term impact on our campus and our community. CEEF has four board members representing different branches of your Student Union.

Requirements for Fund Usage
