Students' Exhibit

Experiential Learning Program

Student guides interact with the new Jewish Studies experiential learning exhibition, Anne Frank: A History for Today. The exhibition is currently on display at UGA Hillel

Responding to the alarming trend in antisemitic events in the state of Georgia, UGA’s Jewish Studies has created an experiential learning program that prepares students to engage with others in the campus community and beyond in combating antisemitism. 

The battle against antisemitism and bigotry is most effectively fought in grades K-12. Using the proven tool of peer-guided education, the Anne Frank Volunteers program provides unique learning opportunities to Georgia middle and high school students. Utilizing a vibrant visual display that documents the life and times of Anne Frank, our student trainers pass along their knowledge to students from grades 6-12 while training them to lead tours of a temporary exhibit in their schools. This allows students to engage multiple audiences, increasing awareness of antisemitism in Georgia schools and communities. This program is undertaken with the Anne Frank Center at the University of South Carolina and has been successful at universities and institutes across the country. Experiential Learning has a pre/corequisite of RELI 3500 (Fall 2024), CMLT 4630 (Fall 2024), or FCID 3500.
