Students jumping in the air for joy

About IACT

IACT, Inspired, Active, Committed, Transformed, is a comprehensive strategy that leverages Birthright Israel to transform Jewish life on campus. IACT’s mission is to ensure that every Jewish student has the opportunity to participate in a meaningful immersive Israel experience and be supported on a journey of Jewish discovery before, during, and after that experience. IACT achieves its goals by providing funding, resources, and support for a dedicated campus professional who will identify and engage lesser-affiliated first-year students and sophomores, recruit them to join a Birthright Israel trip, and steward their involvement in Jewish campus life.
