The Jewish Studies Program has established a travel grant that will pay a portion of students' expenses in their travels to Israel. In addition, there are many programs available through the Study Abroad Office that send students to Jewish universities abroad, or let them enroll in courses relevant to the Jewish Studies program.
Every year, the Jewish Studies Program hosts a visiting expert who delivers a lecture to students, faculty, and community members on a subject pertinent to Jewish Studies. Attendees are then welcome to participate in a panel discussion with local and non-local panelists.
In addition to a lively collection of student groups on campus, Jewish students have access to a myriad of community resources in the greater Columbia area.
