Role Overview

Make your mark on Jewish student life by joining Michigan State University Hillel as the IACT Coordinator.

The IACT Coordinator will work with students before their departure and upon their return from their Taglit-Birthright Israel experiences, developing activities to engage students in Jewish life on campus, by encouraging them to become involved as leaders and participants in student-organized Jewish programming and groups and by directing them to and facilitating their participation in existing Israel-related opportunities on and off campus.
