Guessing Better: How To Estimate Your Jewish Undergraduate Population

Ended Oct 19, 2018


Full course description


Course Description:

One of the most common challenges Hillels face is understanding how many students their Hillel serves. This data point is perhaps one of the most important and the most elusive at the same time. How can we accurately understand the students we have served without understanding our potential? How can we effectively market our programs to prospective students without accurate assessments?  

In this course, we will hear from four professionals about the work they have done on their campuses to more precisely estimate the number of Jewish undergraduates that their Hillel serves. This panel will collaboratively work to share what they each did on campus with the information available to them. Our hope is that you’ll leave the course with new ideas for guessing better.
