Campus Support Director Hillel International

Remote (travel required)

Applications will be accepted until September 14 and candidates will be considered on a rolling basis.



The Campus Support Director (CSD) is a role for experienced Hillel leaders from high-performing Hillels. As a CSD, you will have the opportunity to partner across the movement to support students and professionals to create an enduring connection to Jewish life through campus experiences.


Over the past several years, the CSDs have built strong and trusting relationships with campus professionals and have supported the ongoing improvement of those campuses by providing expert guidance and mentorship to local Hillel leaders. They also help local Hillels strategically access and leverage the resources of Hillel’s Schusterman International Center including development supports, executive searches, grants, best practice resources and more.


Through this partnership, Hillels are more successful, Hillel’s Schusterman International Center has a deeper knowledge of what is happening at every Hillel, and we can proactively work to support each Hillel toward our collective goals. Additionally, satisfaction with Hillel’s Schusterman International Center will be higher and trust stronger.


Campus Support Directors are successful when, over time, all Hillels in their portfolio:

·       Foster a workplace culture that grows and retains their professionals and cultivates top talent to move up in the Hillel movement and to other great organizations in the Jewish world;

·       Build and maintain thriving campus environments that effectively cultivate Jewish pluralism, and implement student engagement strategies that optimize breadth, depth, and impact;

·       Effectively use data to analyze impact and improve programming and operations;

·       Improve fundraising so they can achieve revenue targets that give them the capacity to invest and sustain adequate dollars per student to support excellence; and

·       Have a strong governance model that provides strategic direction and appropriate oversight and invites lay leaders and stakeholders to be partners in building an excellent Hillel.


Each year, the CSD team sets specific goals relative to these objectives for their portfolios.


In addition, CSDs also play critical roles to lead initiatives or to partner with and support other teams and departments at Hillel International, helping to meet movement-wide goals. All CSDs maintain at least one other SIC project or initiative in their portfolio that aligns with strategic priorities and objectives. These special projects are associated with Talent, Engagement, R&D, Organizational Learning, and Advancement.
