Israel Campus Beat (ICB) is the premier student-written online publication that covers Israel trends and events on campus. ICB provides updated news and information for pro-Israel students, the professionals who support them on campus and stakeholders across the broader community. As the only source of original student-written articles that are coordinated to provide both facts and insight into the campus Israel scene,ICB strives to be the go-to address for reading about issues and understanding the reality at North American colleges and universities. ICB also posts articles from local campus newspapers and opportunities such as trips, conferences and internships so that interested students can be better informed and connect with other pro-Israel advocates.
Israel Campus Beat is a project of the Israel on Campus Coalition and the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations

Israel Campus Beat first debuted in 2003 as a weekly digest of news and analysis collected from other publications about the campus Israel climate around the country. With more than 55,000 subscribers, ICB helped inform the community of individuals who were interested in what college newspapers were saying about Israel, juxtaposing student voices alongside national and international viewpoints as well as providing targeted information on a wide range of Israel topics. In the spring of 2010, ICB went on hiatus while the new web-based format,which debuted in January 2011, was planned.
Israel Campus Beat operates through the joint efforts of regular student reporter interns and a team of freelance writers who supply fresh, up-to-date content on a daily basis. With guest commentators and a weekly Editor’s column, regular ICB readers are sure to stay abreast of what is important to them on a national level. In addition to original news reporting, ICB also hosts articles from recognized Israeli news sources like the Jerusalem Post and Ha’aretz, with a weekly round-up of reporting on Israel issues from campus media. ICB is also the place where students and interested individuals can find opportunities to get involved in Israel advocacy and resources to help them plan and implement campus initiatives, with conferences, grants, internships and more listed on an Opportunities page within the site.
