Clubs and Community at Brandeis
One of Brandeis' shining traits is the number of community spaces built by students. Community spaces are dedicated to both shared experiences and sharing experiences and include gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, and ability. This is in no way meant to be an all inclusive list of identity-based clubs at Brandeis, nor is the Queer Resource Center affiliated with anything but the Gender and Sexuality Center space. We cannot guarantee that all of the clubs listed will not do queerphobic or transphobic things.
