of change


UF Hillel recruits a select number of passionate, first year students to participate in our “Leaders of Change” (LOC) immersive development experience, with cohorts offered in Fall and Spring semesters. We look for students who have had some leadership experience in the past and want to develop their skills further to become a leader at UF and to help shape Jewish life on campus.

Leaders of Change participants will take part in a kick-off event and workshops focused on:

  1. Developing interpersonal and professional skills aimed at influencing and inspiring others.

  2. Creating innovative solutions to problems facing UF students and/or the Jewish community.

  3. Providing resources to become a better advocate for yourself and others.

  4. Identifying strengths and weaknesses in order to become a more effective team member and leader.

  5. Learning about different people’s experiences in the Jewish community in order to create a more inclusive environment. 

When applying for LOC, you will note your preferred in-person session. Virtual sessions are also available and you can indicate your preferred time and day on the application form.

In addition to training, participants will have access to:

  • UF Hillel’s network of leaders on campus

  • Participants will work with the UF Hillel’s team to create and run a cohort project for students later in the semester

  • Unique speakers

  • The opportunity to shape Jewish life on campus

Applications for LOC are currently closed, and will reopen in August 2021. If you would like additional information on LOC , please contact Nicole Vitt at nvitt@ufhillel.org.
