A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty :

Programs include but are not limited to:

Graduate School Program and Enrollment - Almost 40% of our graduate students are international students or members of traditionally under-represented populations — graduate students provide diversity to Brandeis, inside and outside of the classroom. Multiple Fellowships for Diverse Student PHD students exist. An Example at the Heller School Wyatt Jones Endowed Fellowship Fund.

Faculty Diversity Representatives at Brandeis oversee the process of hiring new faculty at Brandeis. They are responsible for overseeing the fair treatment of minority and female faculty in their consideration for hiring, tenure-track, and tenured faculty. The diversity representative focuses on the diversity of the applicant pool and holds departments responsible for lack of diversity in their department or their applicant pool. If a department does not meet the standards of the diversity representative, the department is required to organize outreach initiatives in order to correct the imbalance.

The Lerman-Neubauer Fellowship Program at Brandeis University was inaugurated in 2008 to recognize students with exceptional scholastic records who possess the potential to make significant contributions to the academic field of their choice. Students admitted into this program should have a serious interest in research and educational exploration.
