Brandeis Alumni, Family and Friends

Alumni Admissions Council

The Brandeis University Alumni Admissions Council (AAC) is a network of Brandeis graduates who volunteer to represent the University to prospective students, parents, and secondary schools. Organized in 1972, the AAC has grown to more than 1,300 members in regions across the U.S. and around the world. AAC members assist the Brandeis Office of Admissions in recruiting prospective students, adding a personal touch to the college admissions process.

AAC members serve the Office of Admissions by:

  • Representing Brandeis enthusiastically and honestly to prospective students, school counselors, parents and teachers in local communities
  • Staying informed about the state of the University and its application process
  • Interviewing applicants to Brandeis, reporting perceptively on their qualities, and encouraging their matriculation if they are admitted

AAC members can expect to interview applicants to Brandeis in the fall and winter, and encourage admitted students to enroll through personalized correspondence and by participating in local receptions in the spring. Serving on the AAC enables alumni to stay actively involved with the Brandeis family and to set an example as successful and active community members.
