Mayberg Center for Jewish Education and Leadership

The Mayberg Center was created to advance community-based scholarship in the field of Jewish education and leadership, particularly in the arenas of pedagogy, identity, and literacy. The Center will convene academics and practitioners in critical conversations about the Jewish future, catalyze research and provide graduate level training for Jewish educators and certificate program opportunities for professionals working in Jewish non-profits.

Housed in the Graduate School of Education and Human Development (GSEHD), renowned for connecting research to practice and education to the larger community, the Center will become a vibrant laboratory for teaching, learning, and educational engagement. Through interdisciplinary studies and in collaboration with GSEHD’s graduate program in Experiential Education and Jewish Cultural Arts, the Center will explore important links between evolving theories of teaching and learning and formal and experiential education.
