The heart of Jewish student life!
Chabad anticipates and serves the needs of students on a social, educational and spiritual level. At Chabad, all students are welcome, regardless of background, affiliation, and level of observance. Every student becomes part of the Jewish community. Every Jew is family.

Leadership: At Chabad clubs on dozens of campuses, students are invited to take leadership roles in their campus communities, helping foster the creation of the next generation of empowered Jewish leadership.

Chabad on Campus National Foundation: The central body of Chabad on Campus assists Chabad Student Centers worldwide. This includes logistical support and staff training, as well as centralized programming such as national Shabbatons and student leadership retreats.

Expansion: The first Chabad House was started on the UCLA campus in the heady 60's. More recently the Foundation, with the assistance of visionary philanthropists George and Pamela Rohr of New York, has set an ambitious course of expansion. Indeed, during the past five years alone the Chabad campus presence has increased by more than 100%.
