Protecting Immigrants & International Students
Wheelock continues to actively engage with Mayor Walsh’s office as well as with other colleges and universities in Boston to protect international students and immigrants. The College provided helpful information to the Mayor’s office about the impact of recent actions by Pres. Trump to limit travel from certain countries on Wheelock and our higher education community in Boston. We will continue to advocate against this kind of federal action.

Student News


The Sillerman Center for the Advancement of Philanthropy works to engage emerging and established members of the philanthropic community to drive social justice work forward. Generous U exists to support and celebrate student generosity and social concern by promoting campus-based philanthropy and showcasing the ways young people make positive differences through giving. Generous U awards a $10,000 Prize (and a runner up prize) to college students who propose ways of increasing philanthropy on their campus.

Please help us spread the word to undergraduate and graduate students so they can submit their Intent to Apply and then their applications (a proposal and a video) demonstrating how their project will increase philanthropy and/or philanthropic values on campus. Applications are due on Friday, March 17, 2017.

Contest rules and submission guidelines are available at: sillermancenter.brandeis.edu/prize
