In the nuanced and complicated campus climate regarding Israel, few challenges have faced greater resistance to change than those involving faculty and campus administrators. How can funders help to create change in this environment, ensure that their funds achieve their goals, and not go astray? This session examines what funders need to know when making grants in this dynamic and challenging area. We’ll hear first-hand from funders, faculty members, veteran Israeli diplomats, and others as we explore innovative models (and potential pitfalls) for endowing faculty chairs, developing Israel Studies centers, engaging faculty and administrators, and discuss what strategies funders can and have employed to create positive change.
