White, Emily
Emily White is Assistant Vice President of Campus Affairs and Executive Director of JUF's Israel Education Center (IEC). Emily oversees the IEC's programs, strategy, and educational resource development all geared toward increasing student and communal capacity to address anti-Zionism, antisemitism, and anti-Israel activism. Her driving goals are to inspire pride in and commitment to the Jewish community, Israel, and Zionism for Jewish students and young adults. Jewish and non-Jewish students all deserve the chance to understand Israel and Jewish peoplehood and Emily strives to provide those opportunities through IEC programs and resources. Those tools include public policies, strategic planning, curriculum development, and consulting. Emily earned a BA from DePaul University and a Master of Social Work from University of Michigan.
