Facts on the Ground: Jewish Studies in the Public University: The Melton Center of the Ohio State University

By T.M. Rudavsky

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Fall 1999

The Director of the Melton Center at The Ohio State University describes how the Center is now one of the largest and most dynamic Jewish Studies programs in the country. She states that their greatest challenge at the undergraduate level is to maintain high expectations and strive to create a dynamic, open atmosphere which engages and motivates many student levels. At the graduate level, they must be more aggressive in advertising the fact that the Center is now one of the most comprehensive Jewish Studies programs in the country. At the same time they must promote the advantage of pursuing Jewish Studies at a major secular university, combining the best qualities of excellent Judaic studies with disciplinary training and focus.
