The Brandeis Center ( is an independent, nonprofit organization established in 2011 to protect the civil and human rights of the Jewish people and promote justice for all. The Center is committed to combating anti-Semitism on college and university campuses.

Brandeis Center student chapters will host speaker events, lead discussions, and conduct advocacy-oriented training sessions.  Depending on student interest, speakers may address such topics as Jewish civil rights advocacy, campus anti-Semitism, international human rights law, Israel legal advocacy, and counter-terrorism legal policy. Depending on student interest and staff
expertise, the Center will provide or facilitate training on relevant legal topics.  Then, as issues arise, the Center will support those chapters that are interested in engaging directly in legal and policy issues that arise, especially in their respective regions. The Center will also provide chapters with information on LDB legal clerkships, civil rights legal fellowships, and other opportunities.  In other words, these chapters will be a source of education, training, engagement, and advocacy.
