Princeton Review: Brandeis Ranked First in Community Service

In August, the Princeton Review released its annual list of the top ten colleges where students are most active in community service. Brandeis was ranked first with Loyola University, Maryland, Boston College and Creighton University rounding out the top 5.

There are examples after examples of Brandeis’ dedication to community service.  During a sociology course taught by Gordon Fellman, Noah Litwer ’15 became inspired to combine his desire for social change with his passion for gardening and community organizing.  He was recently recognized for developing sustainable community gardens at a local low-income housing development. His work will continue to have positive effects on the residence and other community organizations for years to come.

Placing an importance on community service, the Brandeis student body is supported by the Division of Student Life and Success. This department seeks to establish sustainable and reciprocal partnerships with local social services, governmental, educational, and cultural agencies supporting community service initiatives. Its slogan “Within Community Comes Unity” the Division of Student Life and Success embraces core values such as citizenship, integrity, respect, civility, lifelong learning, and diversity.

The Princeton Review rankings are based on student surveys collected from 380 colleges and universities. The Department of Community Service is located on the second and third floors of the Shapiro Campus Center.
