Brandeis National Committee - San Fernando Valley Chapter


Welcome to the Brandeis National Committee (BNC), your opportunity to join thousands of active women and men who share your love of learning and commitment to academic excellence. Founded in 1948, the same year as Brandeis University, BNC has been a vital partner of the university by helping to support its pursuit of scholarship.

BNC's 30,000-plus members enjoy unique programming with a connection to the university, including peer-led study groups and social and cultural events. Members can attend Brandeis faculty lectures in their own communities and enroll in study groups that use Brandeis faculty-authored study guides, videotaped presentations and films through our partnership with the National Center for Jewish Film. On a personal level, members gain satisfaction from sharing a common purpose: to raise funds that help sustain the position of Brandeis University in the upper echelon of American higher education. Membership provides local and national leadership development opportunities, as well as social connections that lead to friendship and camaraderie.
