OUR MISSION: To enrich the lives of Jewish students so that they may enrich the Jewish people and the world.
OUR VISION: We envision a world where every student is inspired to make an enduring commitment to Jewish life, learning, and Israel.
As the focal point for Jewish campus life for more than 2,200 Jewish undergraduate students (ages 18-22) in Pittsburgh, Hillel Jewish University Center (Hillel JUC) sponsors a wide variety of opportunities to engage in Jewish campus life that acknowledge that Jewish students have a diversity of identities and interests. Every Jewish student is welcomed and encouraged to participate in the array of programs, communities and immersive experiences that are supported and facilitated by Hillel JUC staff. We are dedicated to creating a pluralistic environment for Jewish college students where they are inspired to grow intellectually, spiritually, and socially. Hillel JUC helps students find a balance in being distinctively Jewish and universally human by encouraging them to pursue tzedek (social justice), Jewish learning, and to support Israel and global Jewish peoplehood. Hillel JUC is committed to excellence, innovation, accountability, and results.
