In 2008, with generous support from the Jim Joseph Foundation, 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 Entrepreneur’s 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 Entrepreneur’s Initiative as well as lessons learned from five years of experimentation on campus.
