We are the Brandeis Student Union.
Not only are we the Undergraduate Student Government, but we are student advocates and community organizers as well. Representatives are both directly elected and appointed each year to serve on one of five main branches, each representing various constituencies: the Executive Board, the Allocations Board, the Senate, the Treasury, and the Judiciary.
The Union works hard each year to promote a safe, engaging, innovative, and equitable environment at Brandeis, while creating policies and initiatives meant to build community and improve everyone’s quality of life on and around our campus.
