First Endowed Professorship in Israel/Palestine Studies

Since 2015, we have been the home of North America’s first endowed Professorship in Israel/Palestine Studies. Held by Professor Hilary Falb Kalisman (Jewish Studies and History), this professorship reimagines what it means to study the Middle East, build bridges between academic fields, and foster meaningful conversations with scholars, artists, and members of the public.

Visiting Scholars and Artists

Our Sondra and Howard Bender Visiting Scholar series, International Holocaust Remembrance Day programs, Embodied Judaism symposia, and Israel/Palestine Studies events make CU Boulder a “go-to” location for visiting scholars and artists to share their work with faculty, students, and members of the public. All of our public programming is supported by the David Shneer Fund for Community Programming, Public Scholarship, and the Arts, honoring the memory of our beloved friend and colleague, Professor David Shneer z”l.
