Dr. Jenny Small and Dr. Pietro Sasso: What should universities be offering Jewish students?

Today we have with us Dr. Jenny Small, Virtual Scholar, and Dr. Pietro Sasso, Research Fellow from the Piazza Center to explore questions of identity and belonging in traditionally Jewish fraternities and sororities. In episode 408 of the Fraternity Foodie Podcast, we find out why Jenny chose Brandeis University for her undergraduate experience, what it’s like for Pietro to work at Delaware State as a program coordinator for a Doctorate program, what should institutions be offering Jewish students, why Jewish educators seem to struggle with advocating for Jewish students, why many University Presidents have not been vocal on this issue to support their students, why some non-Jewish educators who hold other minoritized identities have high empathy for Jewish students’ experiences, advice to educators working with Jewish-heritage chapters, whether Jewish fraternities and sororities should be exclusively honoring their history with only Jewish members versus growth on today’s diverse college campuses, resources about traditionally Jewish fraternities and sororities as well as identity and belonging, and what professionals will learn at their upcoming session at the Association of Fraternity and Sorority Advisors Annual Meeting in Tampa.
