Mission and Vision
The Hillel Campus Alliance of Michigan is a coalition of campus Hillels located throughout Michigan. HCAM is building dynamic and vibrant Jewish communities for students at Alma College, Albion College, Central Michigan University, Eastern Michigan University, Grand Valley State University, Kalamazoo College, Michigan Technological University, Northern Michigan University, Saginaw Valley State University, and Western Michigan University.
All HCAM students are offered travel opportunities including Alternative Breaks and Birthright Israel trips, volunteer programs, and the chance to participate in a variety of student leadership conferences.
HCAM serves five core campuses: Central Michigan University, Eastern Michigan University, Grand Valley State University, Kalamazoo College and Western Michigan University. Hillel staff meet with student leaders to determine their vision for Jewish life on campus and work closely with those leaders to make their vision a reality. Core campuses receive funding, staff supervision, and leadership development opportunities. Hillel staff travel regularly to core campuses to participate in programs, meet with leaders, and engage new and involved students.
Affiliate campuses include Alma College, Albion College, Michigan Technological University, Northern Michigan University, and Saginaw Valley State University. Affiliate campuses receive funding and student leadership development similar to core campuses, and limited supervision is provided when a group of students commit to taking ownership over their respective campus Hillel.
