People's Choice Award The Campus Partnership Award
This award will recognize Hillel(s) that demonstrate excellence in successfully implementing creative and innovative strategies in working with campus partners.
Being an effective campus partner can be defined in a variety of ways including:
• Working closely with the university as a whole, or with specific partners, to strengthen opportunities for Jewish students on campus.
• Utilizing Hillel’s resources to advance the goals of the university, impacting both the Jewish students and the general population.
• Demonstrating that Hillel is an integral part of the university culture and has “a seat at the table.”
Nominations for this award should demonstrate how the Hillel has been successful in at least one of the above areas.
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.
