Biographical / Historical Note

The Brandeis University National Women's Committee was founded in 1948 with a mission to develop and support libraries at Brandeis University. In 2008 the organization changed their name to the Brandeis National Committee (BNC). The BNC is the largest friends-of-a-library group in the world-as of 2018 BNC has contributed over $141 million to Brandeis University. BNC and all of its chapters support Study and Special Interest Gorups which are study guides written by Brandeis faculty on various cultural and social topics. Study guides are written exclusively for BNC members for use in their chapter study groups.

The Brandeis National Committee-Las Vegas Chapter (BNCLV) was established in 1994. The organization is committed to providing philanthropic support to Brandeis University. In particular, BNCLV supports an endowed scholarship fund that benefits a Southern Nevada student attending Brandeis University.
