36 Under 36: Robyn Hughey
Robyn Hughey, 30, of East Lansing is associate director of MSU Hillel at Michigan State University and Hillel Campus Alliance of Michigan (HCAM). Robyn models excellence in her work by engaging students, empowering student leaders, mentoring staff, advancing Hillel’s mission and building community for Jewish students on more than 11 campuses throughout Michigan. Her skills were a vital part of creating HCAM, a thriving network of 10 campuses serving more than 2,000 students statewide. Much of this growth can be attributed to Robyn’s positive attitude, hard work and belief that every Jewish student should have access to Jewish life during his or her college years. She empowers student leaders to use peer-to-peer engagement on their campuses to create supportive environments for students to explore and strengthen their Jewish identity. Many of the Jewish students that Robyn mentors move on to jobs and volunteer positions in their Jewish community after graduation.
