Campus Engagement Internship

Campus Engagment Internship

Cornell Hillel's Campus Engagement Interns (CEI's) help facilitate deep and meaningful Jewish conversations and experiences on campus. Whether it's Jewish ROTC's hosting their own community Shabbat, a sorority-wide challah bake, or a student-led conversation on Israeli and Palestinian food, our interns create unique spaces for Jews to connect. 

Our Mission

Become a Campus Engagement Intern

This semester's CEI's are a part of our most competitive application season yet. Each intern brings their unique story and perspective to our work. CEI interns are Jewish student leaders on campus. We look for students who have a unique voice, a desire to affect their world, and a hope to grow their professional skills.  CEI's are provided with extensive professional and personal development through weekly mentorship meetings and bi-weekly trainings with experts.  Interns are selected through a rigorous application and interview process each semester. CEI's receive a $400 stipend each semester upon successful completion of the internship. 

What's it like to be an intern?

Because of the CEI program, there are

so many more familiar Jewish faces on campus to feel connected to.

CEI is just another facet of Hillel

that has made Cornell feel like a Jewish home away from home!

The CEI experience has given me the confidence and resources to make campus a more engaging

and friendly place.

My favorite CEI memory was walking to the Commons with another Jewish student to get ice-cream and sitting out in the sun discussing Jewish values. CEI has allowed me to connect with my Jewish peers and learn more about their Jewish stories and what Judaism means to them.
