DeisHack isn’t your typical hackathon. We pair hackers with local nonprofits to build real-world solutions.
Join 200 hackers for 48-hours while we hack for social good.
Deis Hacks is a cherished Brandesian action-tank that synthesizes our student body’s value of social good, drawing talent from all over campus.
“I was inspired by the ideas the students came up with for our local nonprofits. It’s refreshing to see that type of brain-power. They combined heart with brains and that’s a wonderful combination. This event goes to show that the types of things being done at Brandeis opens doors for students and their community.”
