Our Campus Outreach Efforts
Campus Outreach Lecture Program (COLP) and Campus Panels
Drawing on the Museum’s staff and affiliated experts, our campus outreach lecture topics build on interdisciplinary scholarship related to the field of Holocaust Studies as well as the Mandel Center’s past, present, and future regional initiatives. Campus Outreach Lectures allow colleges and universities without a Holocaust specialist or course offering to introduce their student body to Holocaust education.
Regional Campus Outreach Programs and Outreach Symposia
These programs explore emerging research on common themes and place Holocaust history in conversation with local history. These multi-year programs:
- Bring together students, scholars, and lecturers from various disciplines
- Educate campus communities about the history of the Holocaust
- Model how to responsibly research and talk about the complexities of different histories
- Facilitate informed dialogue about the lessons and relevance of those histories
Pedagogy Roundtables on Your Campus
Pedagogy roundtables bring together college faculty and lecturers from various disciplines and institutions to discuss the trials, successes, and strategies for teaching topics that students find challenging. Roundtables are open to faculty and students who are training to become educators.
The Mandel Center offers facilitated lectures or discussions for college or university groups after touring the Museum’s permanent or special exhibitions.
