Hillel Undergraduate Leadership Council (HULC)
The Hillel Undergraduate Leadership Council (HULC) is two separate elected student boards from Cleveland State and Case Western Reserve. Through HULC, students are able to take leadership roles and responsibilities through a formal structure. Students involved are presented with opportunities to actively participate in the coordinating of Cleveland Hillel programming, community service, and outreach to other students and organizations. HULC engages students to become leaders and learn valuable skills that can stick with them for the rest of their lives. While not everyone has an elected position, HULC is open to anyone who wishes to get more involved with Cleveland Hillel and have a chance to make a difference in their own lives as well as others. For questions or more information contact us online.
Students are encouraged to participate in local, regional, national, and international conferences that are organized by Hillel or any other Jewish organization. These conferences help develop knowledge of the Jewish community, issues that are being faced, and networking opportunities. Travel and registration subsidies are available. For questions or more information contact us online.
Cleveland Hillel works with Hillel: The Foundation for Jewish Campus Life to send students to Israel on birthright and other leadership programs, within the United States on social justice trips to repair the world, and to other countries to learn about their culture and society.

Volunteering on Campus and in the Community
Cleveland Hillel organizes volunteering opportunities for individual students and groups both on campus and in the community. Among the different efforts, students have raised money for different organizations, been involved in blood donation drives, Gift of Life events, organized carnivals for senior citizens, and tutored school children. Information about these are posted on the web site as they are planned. For questions or more information contact us online.
Student members of the Cleveland Hillel Foundation Board of Directors
Every academic year 6-8 undergraduate or graduate students are appointed to the Cleveland Hillel Board of Directors. These students are voting members of the board, help assure that the organization is fulfilling its mission, and provide a student perspective on the issues the organization is facing. For questions or more information contact us online.
Graduating? What next?
Incoming seniors are invited to become part of a unique opportunity to transition into the post college world. The goal of the program is to enhance your experience while studying and training here in Cleveland and having a smoother transition into the work world. This initiative includes the possibility of being mentored by a Cleveland professional in your field of study and networking with the Jewish community. In addition to these, each participant will be individually coached and the group will implement a volunteer project. These responsibilities enable you to grow personally and professionally. During the program you will also learn about the general community, the Jewish community, career paths and how to best present yourself.
