Purpose: To expand the Senior Jewish Educator (SJE) Program to ten campuses across the United States who will employ Jewish experiential educators. These professional educators work in tandem with college-age interns who, as "Campus Entrepreneurs," engage peers on campus to involve them in Jewish life.  The 2014 grant is to expand effective campus-based Jewish student engagement and experiential Jewish learning. This includes the development of a comprehensive business plan and efforts that are part of Hillel's three pillars for future growth of the organization—Excellence on Campus: Supporting and Measuring Quality; Excellence in Recruiting and Developing Talent; and Excellence in Resource Development.
