Kerry Guerard

What do you do at Brandeis?
 I am the Director of Student Rights and Community Standards.  I manage the conduct system for the University.

How long have you worked here? 
 I started as an interim staff member in September of 2104.

What do you like to do outside of work?
I like to cook, and find new recipes on Pinterest.  I love spending time with my family, specifically my nieces.  I love Crossfit and have been doing it for about a year.  I have done 2 competitions, and have 2 more coming up.

Please share interesting facts about yourself that others don't know?
1) Prior to starting Crossfit, I was a completely unathletic person.  Never played a sport, and hated the gym.  Now I Crossfit 5-6 days a week, and am pretty obsessed.  
2) I have a dog, Kaycee.  We rescued her almost 3 years ago, despite my lifelong commitment to never owning an animal.  Now I look at rescue dogs all the time and want to rescue more.  
3) I have 6 months to complete my "40 things to accomplish before I turn 40" bucket list.  It's going to be difficult to accomplish, but I am determined! 

"Students are the Reason"

The Princeton Review ranked Brandeis # 1 for "Students Most Engaged in Community Service"
We are so proud of the hard work shown day in & day out by our Community Service Department & Waltham Group!

The Division of Student Life and Success includes various offices that work to enrich the student experience. These offices are overseen by the Dean of Students, Jamele Adams. Student Life serves as an advocate for all Brandeis students, strives to ensure the quality of their overall co-curricular experience at the university, and promotes opportunities for students to engage in leadership activities and to experience personal, social, and emotional growth and development.

The staff maintains a varied program of social, cultural and intellectual events during the academic year. Our staff works to build a community based upon mutual understanding and consideration. The work of student life and success reflects the commitment to our core values: citizenship, integrity, respect, civility, lifelong learning and embracing diversity.
