If you want to help fight anti-Semitism and ensuring fairness to Israel at Columbia and Barnard, here is your chance to make your voice heard and make a difference.

What it takes to run and promote our website

This is a partial list of activities necessary to run and promote Columbia University Monitor website:

  1. Manage the technical aspects of the website, design of it, structure, etc.

  2. Write all the blog posts, forum entries, etc.

  3. Compile all of the information for the website:

    • Track anti-Israel and anti-Semitic activities at Columba that are listed here.

    • Track media stories (print, video, blogs, etc.) that are relevant to our mission, i.e. either about anti-Semitic/anti-Israel activities at Columbia or such relevant stories written by people affiliated with Columbia (such as when Rashid Khalidi says or radio that Jews will "infest" Trump administration) or activities by pro-Israel students, such as SSI, opposing anti-Israel activities, etc. This information appears here.

    • Read through all Columbia publications: Columbia SpectatorBWog blog, SIPA's Morningside Post blog.

    • Compile information about anti-Israel/anti-Semitic Columbia faculty that appears here.

    • Compile various reference information useful in our fight to push back anti-Israelism on Columbia campus. It will appear in the Reference menu item(s). It will be information about people and organizations inside and outside of Columbia helpful or opposing our cause, etc.

  4. Promote the website and various postings. Essentially, when we put up somewhat newsworthy information on the website, such as a new blog post or news about the website, etc. we post it in various Facebook groups and on the Twitter feed. This is a fairly mechanical put time-consuming process.

  5. Publish newsletters. Specifically,

    • Maintain the list of subscribers in MailChimp,​

    • Design the format of the newsletters,

    • Write engaging content, even if it mostly refers to something published on the website (such as a blog post).

  6. Publish Action Alerts. This is similar to publishing a mini newsletter only on a single, very specific and time-sensitive subject.

  7. Collect donations.
