This award celebrates the campus that most epitomizes and supports The David Project's methodology of Relational Advocacy. This includes successfully implementing every component of The David Project’s on-campus program, integrating Israel Uncovered into the on-campus outreach strategy, and in general embodying the success that Relational Advocacy can have on a campus’ Israel climate.
The intern team at the University of Cincinnati successfully completed strategic on-campus outreach activities, effectively used outreach to impact the campus map, used on-campus programming and initiatives to support their teams outreach goals, and incorporated Israel Uncovered into the year-long outreach strategy. With only a 4-person intern team this university managed to complete over 150 outreach interactions, and 10 events over the course of the school year with 8 different communities on their campus. Their niche programs are thoughtful and intimate, and their network programs are fun and engaging. For Israel Uncovered recruitment, they tripled their recruitment goals which lead to a very successful delegation representing their school.
The David Project and Cincinnati Hillel have a wonderful relationship and work as one cohesive unit. The Israel Fellow, Rotem Ben-Lulu, and the interns created an environment where campus leaders are interested in Israel and truly want to be more involved in the Israel discourse on their campus.
We are so proud to award the intern team at the University of Cincinnati with the 2017 Campus of the Year!
