Award for Strengthening the Global Hillel Movement
This award will recognize campuses that demonstrate excellence in successfully implementing creative and innovative strategies in collaboration with other Hillels to strengthen the overall movement.
Award nominees should explain how they have developed key strategic alliances with other Hillels. A Hillel is more likely to receive this award when it does one or more of the following:
• Accomplish a shared goal through collaborative programming.
• Create joint committees and taskforces.
• Integrate students from all participating schools.
• Demonstrate deep staff cooperation.
• Introduce and/or support campus-wide initiatives and projects with a variety of student organizations and academic departments.
• Promote initiatives, events, and services that inform the campus community about Jewish education, culture, and religion.
• Coordinate fundraising activities.
• Share resources (e.g., facilities, literature, technology, etc.) with various departments and student organizations.
Special Note for Consideration:
This award will be given to all of the campuses who participated in the program. Please make sure to list all participating Hillels in the nomination.
We have crafted these questions to ensure that each nomination includes a concise yet well-rounded description of the strategic partnerships they have formed with members of their campus communities. Use supporting documentation to elaborate upon your answers and please keep your total narrative within a 750-word limit.
Please consider the following:
• These awards are intended for the entire Hillel and not just the work of a single person. The endorsements help communicate to the committee that the entire Hillel supports this nomination.
• Hillels may nominate themselves for more than one award category. However, a single Hillel will not receive more than one award.
If you have any questions regarding the nomination process, we encourage you to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All nominations are due by Monday, November 7, 2016.
