The Heller School for Social Policy and Management - Brandeis University

Graduate Education, Applied Research, Public Engagement

Through the graduate education of students, pursuit of applied interdisciplinary research and active public engagement, the Heller School constantly examines policies and programs that respond to the changing needs of vulnerable individuals and groups in our society.

As a graduate school and research institution, the Heller School has pioneered in a variety of policy areas, including health; mental health; substance abuse; children, youth, and families; aging; international and community development; developmental disabilities; philanthropy; and work and inequalities.

The faculty, students and staff of the Heller School are culturally and professionally diverse with broadly varied academic and organizational backgrounds. The school provides a setting where students who are experienced practitioners are exposed to innovative ideas, and those with less experience are prepared to enter the field.

The Heller School's vision is focused and clear, believing in the power ofknowledge advancing social justice.

Mission

Our mission at the Heller School is to drive positive social change through research, education, and public engagement that inform policies and programs designed to address disparities in well-being and promote social inclusion in a sustainable way. We are dedicated researchers, applying social, economic, and political science to solve pressing domestic and global problems. We are also steadfast idealists, working toward a better world through the knowledge we generate, the leaders we educate, and the communities we engage with globally.
