In SSI we want to provide students on college campuses and universities with the opportunity to support the position of Israel in the Middle East, and to reassure students who oppose the demonization of the State of Israel on campus that they are not alone. We are here to change the anti-Israel climate many students encounter on campus. We believe that by being part of a strong and thriving movement, students are empowered to express their views in support of Israel.
Our goals include familiarizing students and the university community with current events in the Middle East, sharing Israeli culture on campus, and responding to anti-Israel propaganda spread by other members of the academic community. SSI's activities are mostly proactive, meaning that the group initiates them. Some of the activities are also reactive, and are initiated when needed as a response to anti-Israel propaganda on campuses. We believe in active campus involvement, coalition building, and outreach. We believe that knowledge of Israel’s history and its day to day reality will promote a better understanding of the State of Israel. The need on college campuses is to have a confident pro-Israel voice, and the solution we offer is grassroots advocacy.
