Jewish Alumni Network

The Jewish Alumni Network of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (“JAN”) is an official affiliate of the University of Illinois Alumni Association (“UIAA”), as well as a unit of the Margie K. and Louis N. Cohen Center for Jewish Life.
JAN helps establish relationships between current and future University of Illinois alumni, and develops networks within the larger University of Illinois and global Jewish communities. JAN provides opportunities and programs that enhance the ways in which individuals identify Jewishly, and creates, supports and fosters vibrant and diverse Jewish life and culture as alumni integrate into communities worldwide. JAN promotes unity and maintains communications among Jewish alumni and friends 

of UIUC, and mentors and assists newer alumni with their integration into the working world.

 Membership is open to all UIUC alumni, friends of UIUC, current or retired faculty and staff, and current UIUC students in their final semester (cumulatively, “alumni”). While there is an application process to become a member of JAN, there is no membership cost to join JAN.
Current JAN Advisory Board:
