Coronavirus/COVID-19 Update

Testing requirements will shift to once-a-week From Dec 20 – Jan 3 to reflect the drastically de-densified campus and closures by the Broad and university.  Twice a week requirements will resume Jan 4.

Brandeis’ Spring 2021 semester is being conducted in a hybrid fashion, with some students living on campus and taking a portion of their courses in person and some students studying completely remotely. Students, faculty and staff coming to campus should comply with all measures required within the Campus Passport, including testing and taking the Daily Health Assessment. For complete information, visit the COVID-19 Response website.

In response to the Coronavirus / COVID-19, it is important that the community is aware of the COVID-19 Policies that will be enforced on campus. These policies are in place for the safety of our community and remain in effect until further notice.

The Department of Student Rights and Community Standards (SRCS) is committed to engaging students in educational conversations as seamlessly as possible. SRCS has transitioned to virtual meetings, and formal Student Conduct Process meetings will be offered via Zoom or telephone. As usual, students will receive an email to their Brandeis email address regarding any meetings.

The Department of Student Rights and Community Standards offers students educational opportunities for personal growth and values clarification. 

Our aim is to educate the campus about issues central to the mission of the institution, and to react to inappropriate behavior in a fair and responsive manner. Our staff provides education and outreach efforts regarding alcohol and other drug use, student involvement on campus and leadership development.

Rights and Responsibilities

All students enrolled in any undergraduate, graduate, or advanced academic course or program, on our campus or via Internet-based programs or courses, are considered members of the Brandeis University community, and are therefore responsible for meeting all of the standards in this code.

Student Conduct Process

The Student Conduct Process is based on established expectations and standards of behavior at Brandeis as described in Rights and Responsibilities, and also relies on a peer judgment model.
