The Israel on Campus Coalition was formed during a consultation convened by the Schusterman Family Foundation in March 2002 to evaluate the worrisome rise in anti-Israel activities on college campuses across North America. Jewish community professionals in attendance concluded there was an essential and immediate need for:
- Increased strategic cooperation and collaboration among community organizations from across the political spectrum
- Improved sharing of information, ideas and resources to minimize duplicative efforts
- A shift to pro-active advocacy and educational initiatives to better support Israel on campus
The ICC was given a home at the Schusterman International Center in Washington, D.C. and officially launched in July 2002 with a consultation including an even broader number of concerned professionals from the Jewish community. Since then, the ICC has helped organize the Jewish community to work together - and focus on - a pro-active, pro-Israel agenda on campus.
Today, the ICC serves as the central coordinating and strategic body to address campus issues and intelligently impact a pro-active, pro-Israel agenda on campus. The Jewish community relies on the ICC and its members to meet the needs of the pro-Israel community on campus, identify the important issues and initiatives, and work cooperatively with key partners and community organizations.
