Interested in participating in a campus-wide discussion concerning Domestic Violence? A Domestic Violence Symposium will take place on Thursday, March 8thfrom 5:45pm-8:30 pm in the Third Floor Art Gallery of the SCC. The goal of this symposium is to create a dialogue amongst the Brandeis and greater Waltham community to discuss community response to domestic violence.  We will have faculty and community members speaking on a panel discussion followed by reflection activities.
