Message From the Dean

List College students are extraordinary, and I feel so fortunate to work with them. Dedicated, passionate, intellectually curious, and determined, they want more from their college years. At List College, they get it. Immersing themselves in Jewish and secular studies, they gain deep and expansive perspectives on the past, present, and future. Pursuing additional experiences outside of the classroom, they take on internships, jobs, and extracurricular activities that further enrich their learning. It is deeply gratifying to guide these students as they identify and pursue their own paths to adulthood. When they graduate, they utilize all that they have gained to fashion their identities as American Jews. With List College alumni as the Jewish lay and professional leaders of the future, I feel enormously hopeful about American Jewry in the twenty-first century.
