Brandeis Alumni, Family and Friends

Alumni Association

With more than 60,000 members worldwide, the Brandeis Alumni Association is a vibrant community that offers lifelong opportunities for alumni to stay connected to Brandeis and each other.

If you received a degree from any school at Brandeis or if you were enrolled as a student at Brandeis for at least one year, you are automatically a member of the Alumni Association. The Brandeis International Business School and The Heller School for Social Policy and Management offer additional programming for graduate alumni.

Benefits and Services

The Alumni Association provides alumni with valuable benefits and services designed to meet your needs no matter your age, profession or level of affiliation. The Alumni Association plans more than 150 events each year; provides discounts on insurance, tickets and travel; and offers free career services for life.

Supporting Membership

While membership in the Alumni Association is automatic and free, thousands of alumni choose to make an annual supporting member gift to help fund valuable alumni benefits, services and programs. A voluntary gift of $40 per individual, or $80 per Brandeis couple, also entitles you to additional benefits, such as library privileges and exclusive invitations to sporting and theater events.
