<div>The Brandeis University Summer Institute for Israel Studies (SIIS) has as its goal "normalizing" Israel studies within the academy-making the study of Israel a part of the curriculum of higher education. To that end, it prepares established faculty members to teach about Israel within the frameworks of their own disciplines. To date, the Institute has educated five cohorts of over 100 college and university faculty members to teach about Israel. Each year an independent evaluator has collected data from SIIS fellows about their courses and the impact of the Institute on their scholarship and teaching practice. This year, fellows from the first four cohorts, 2004-2007, responded to the survey and described their courses, their impressions of the impact of SIIS on their teaching and professional development, their reactions to post Institute programming, and their needs for the future ...
