The Natan & Hannah Schwalb Center for Israel & Jewish Studies

Bringing the Richness of a Great World Culture to the Heartland


Established in 2009, The Natan & Hannah Schwalb Center for Israel & Jewish studies’ mission is to create, coordinate, and promote interdisciplinary programming focused on teaching and scholarship in: Israel Studies, Jewish Studies, and the history, politics, cultures and societies of the Middle East.

Our primary goal is to expand knowledge about Israel, Judaism, and the Middle East on the university campus and beyond, while promoting and facilitating collaborative scholarship with institutions in Israel and around the world.  Our operational values are excellence, collaboration, diversity, critical thinking, and academic independence.
