Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life Senior Jewish Educator and Campus Entrepreneurs Initiative
In 2008, Hillel embarked on an experimental path designed to dramatically increase the number of Jewish students involved in Jewish campus life. By launching the Senior Jewish Educator and Campus Entrepreneurs Initiative as two complementary initiatives, Hillel piloted a cohort of educators who work in tandem with student engagement interns on ten campuses. Together, the interns and educators were charged with meaningfully connecting significant numbers of students to Jewish life and learning.
This report offers findings from a two-year evaluation of the Senior Jewish Educator and Campus Entrepreneurs Initiative as well as lessons learned from five years of experimentation on campus.
