Student Leadership Opportunities

Tufts Hillel is a student-run community. Students create, plan, and promote programs that inspire and connect students from all backgrounds and  across campus.

Whether you have lots of time or a little, want to join a committee or project,  or feel the entrepreneurial spirit, there are many ways that students can become leaders in Tufts Hillel - one of the most dynamic and diverse organizations on campus. All student leaders receive support and coaching from experienced peers and from dedicated professional staff.

Here are just a few of the many leadership opportunities that you can explore.

Student Board & Program Coordinators

The Tufts Hillel Student Board is on the front line of a broad range of educational, cultural, social, religious and social justice programming. Board meetings are held weekly. Led by an student executive team working with 8 committees, the Board plans and organizes events, lectures, classes and special activities that reflect the interests, intellect, and humanity of our diverse student body.

For students whose time is more limited, leadership opportunities are still available as student Program Coordinators (ProCos). ProCos are social entrepreneurs who can experiment with new ideas and formats, plan short term projects, and not have to commit to a full semester. Intrigued? Contact the Vice President of Community Programming. 

Attend one of our monthly “Think Tank” meetings and tell us about an idea for a program you would like to run. With guidance from the Vice President of Engagement and other board members, you’ll be able to watch your idea come to life. The choice is yours and the possibilities are endless. Bring us an idea and get involved.

Initiatives

Tufts Hillel gives students the guidance, resources, and opportunities to deepen their exploration of Judaism -- when they choose and how they choose to learn more.

Over the years, students have developed incredible initiatives to focus on specific areas that are compelling, relevant, and interesting to them.

Student-run initiatives are an evolving and powerful way to connect with some of the most important issues of our time. Initiatives explore issues such as health and wellness, children’s literacy, and Holocaust and genocide education – to name a few – through a Jewish lens, projected on the larger world we live in. Each initiative has its own leadership board and structure.

Please visit Student Board & Committees and Initiatives for more information about leadership opportunities with Tufts Hillel.
