Hillel International has been selected as an honoree for CIO magazine’s 27th annual CIO 100 Awards for our development of REACH. The award recognizes Hillel as one of 100 innovative organizations that uses IT effectively to create genuine business value. Hillel is featured in the coverage of CIO 100 honorees online and in the August issue of CIO Magazine.
REACH is a custom system that evaluates program success based on students' Jewish growth rather than on the number of participants in Hillel's initiatives to connect students to Jewish life, learning and Israel. REACH's online application enables student interns and staff to track developing relationships with Jewish students on campus. The system lets Hillel assess, in real time, the progress of interns and staff toward their goals and the impact the peer engagement initiatives are having on their college campuses.
Since its implementation in 2010, Hillel has increased student engagement in REACH by more than 3,000 percent, from 6,000 to 188,000 students.
Matt Braman, Hillel's Vice President of Information Technology & Administration, pictured here accepting the award, notes: “In the world of IT, the CIO recognition is very prestigious; last year’s winners include Boeing, FedEx, IBM and Intel.”
We congratulate the entire Hillel International IT team.
