Student board is the student governing body that ensures Hillel is running smoothly and efficiently at all times. It is the external face and spokesperson of Hillel to the University and the community at large.​ Student board implements strategic vision for Hillel leadership team, ensures the duties and obligations of the organization are met, and maintains a lively jewish community on campus through social, religious and community outreach programs and community service and social action events.​

for Hunger


For over three decades, Illini Public Affairs Committee (IlliniPAC) has strongly supported the U.S.- Israel relationship at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

We do so by advocating for elected officials to support a strong U.S.- Israel alliance, educating the student body about the benefits of strong ties between the two nations, and engaging student leaders across campus to promote a pro-Israel environment at the University.
