Meet the Matchmaker of our Dual Degree Program:
Yeshiva Initiatives Education Program (YIEP)

The YIEP was founded by Rabbis seeing the pressures on Jewish students to continue deep Jewish education for leadership and community – while at the same time, earning a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in their chosen profession. Their innovative solution is to build strategic partnerships between quality universities and Jewish education institutions to offer Jewish students a way to use their time, funds and effort with great value. They said:

It is the concern for the Klal that motivates our activities…Our innovative programs were designed to meet the needs of adults seeking to complete their degrees while balancing work, family and civic responsibilities. Our programs have been geared to optimize participation from individuals wherever they may reside and work, United States, Canada, Israel, and beyond… [Their] Judaic knowledge, Yeshiva or Seminary transcripts or college credits can be applied toward a bachelor’s degree completion at Bellevue University.

Machon Chana Women’s Institute is delighted to partner with the YIEP and Bellevue University, offering the highest quality education opportunities to our women students. Explore YIEP values, degree programs, student support services.
