Hillel DU Student Leadership Team
Hillel, like any organization, thrives on its leadership. The people who take on leadership positions will influence the direction the organization will take in the coming year. A leader by definition is someone who advises, guides, and inspires others; all of which are true in this case. But we go beyond that. The leaders of Hillel devote themselves to the success of the organization and serve as ambassadors of the organization on campus.
While there is a great deal of responsibility involved in serving on the Hillel Board, the benefits are incalculable. You can ask any former board member; it is an experience that will remain with you throughout life. Our leadership team has made friendships that will last well beyond the college years and many of the lessons you will learn and skills you will develop will apply not only in Hillel but also in your future professional lives.
Fall 2016 Interns
FYSH (First Year Student of Hillel) Program
This year we are offering the First Year Student of Hillel (FYSH) an opportunity to create community, connect with upper classmen, develop leadership skills and learn more about and make a difference at Hillel.
Freshman year is filled with new experiences ranging from Greek Life and student clubs to Living Learning Communities, making new friends, exploring Denver and spending time up in the mountains. We want to make sure the Hillel can be that “Home Away from Home” that helps you connect to the larger campus while giving you a place and community in which you feel comfortable.
