Testimonial: University of Texas Hillel

KaylaIsrael Advocacy through social media is the next big thing. Well at least at the Univeristy of Texas that is. Just a few months ago I applied to the Israel on Campus Coalition for a grant to fund a new initiative I was hoping to start. Together with Ayala Peer, the Israel Fellow on my campus, we created a fellowship through which four students would advocate for Israel on the web.

Each of the four fellows is in charge of a different method of social media including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and a blog. A part of this fellowship includes flying in different professionals to train the four fellows in both Israel Advocacy and Social Media. When I heard about Adam Goldberg and his blog, Socially Gold, I knew he was exactly what I was looking for, someone who understands the Hillel world and who also knows the ins and outs of social media.

After exchanging a few e-mails we agreed on a date to fly Adam to Austin. We also elected to have continued support from Adam as I knew his expertise would be critical in helping the four fellows really get their social media initiative off the ground. Adam has been extremely helpful throughout this whole process helping to create a social media strategy as well as staying in touch with all of the fellows by checking in with them regularly.

My hope is that other campuses will be able to follow the model we have created because I truly believe that social media is a huge component in reaching out to new students and keeping a modern face in an ever changing world.

Adam Goldberg is the social media consultant behind Hillel’s Ask Big Questions social media strategy that has allowed us to reach over 15,000 students in less than a year. He is extremely creative, forward thinking, and an excellent teacher. If you are looking for someone to bring to campus who understands students, university life and social media, Adam is your guy! I highly recommend learning with him.

Adam,

On behalf of the American Cancer Society South Atlantic Division, THANK YOU for your support throughout this year in helping us to engage our collegiate volunteers.  I have referenced your Socially Gold blog repeatedly to help teach our youth the most effective ways to promote their events and engage their participants.  Additionally, I have used your guidance on many occasions now to train our division collegiate leadership team on the best ways to utilize social media and to stay relevant as they communicate with their peers.  Your continued support is so very appreciated as the more people we can reach, the more lives we can ultimately save in the fight against cancer.  Thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge in social media.  As a non-profit organization, we are so grateful to have access to your fantastic social media resources and insights through Socially Gold.

Best,
Bonnie
