Before its establishment in 1948, Brandeis was known as the “Brandeis Project” to the visionary founders who sought to create a university where all could learn without fear of discrimination.

Today, the Brandeis community continues to support independent, limited-term fundraising projects consistent with the University’s mission. Entrepreneurial projects are in our DNA! Check out The Brandeis Project initiatives below for more information.
