Executive Director, USC Hillel
CEO Jewish Alumni Association
Bailey London is the incoming Allen & Ruth Ziegler Executive Director of the USC Hillel Foundation. Bailey previously served as the Director of Emerging Leadership and Next Gen Initiatives at the Jewish Federation of Palm Beach County. While at the Federation, she developed and implemented a prestigious leadership training program and significantly impacted the Jewish community through financial resource development and young adult engagement. Bailey graduated with two Masters Degrees from the USC School of Social Work and HUC’s School of non-Profit Management. With infectious enthusiasm and energy, and as a proud Trojan alumna, Bailey is excited to return to Los Angeles to continue the transformation of Jewish life at USC.
Alison Levine is Advancement/ Development Officer for USC Hillel where she is working to strengthen the Jewish Trojan network through our Parent’s Association and the USC Jewish Alumni Association. She grew up in Sherman Oaks and graduated from University of California, Davis. After three years of Hillel work at Towson University and surviving the largest blizzard Maryland has experienced in decades, it was time for the West Coast native to head back to Los Angeles. She enjoys baking, traveling, and is working to the day when she can call herself a runner.

I was born and raised in Ashkelon, Israel. I did my military service as an infantry instructor, and was released from the army as a lieutenant. After three years of service I traveled Argentina, and made amazing memories. I studied broadcast journalism at Sapir College, and discovered my love of the media. For the last two years, I worked with children with special needs, and experienced an amazing sense of fulfillment. Working with them made me realize that we received the most amazing gift of all, the ability to give.
