University Leaders

Through AJC Project Interchange, university leaders, presidents, chancellors, provosts, and deans delve into academic and research exchange opportunities and campus issues.

Project Interchange university leaders delegations connect participants with their Israeli counterparts to discuss best practices, develop bilateral research and exchange programs, and discuss important issues that often arise on campus. Delegations also travel to the Palestinian Authority, where they engage with Palestinian leaders.

This was a rare opportunity to explore academic collaboration on a global level. The meetings furthered cross-cultural ideas on innovation and learning and established a foundation for collaboration with Israeli partners.

The Impact of University Leaders Delegations in Israel

University presidents, chancellors, provosts, and deans utilize their newfound contacts with their Israeli counterparts to foster mutually beneficial academic and research exchange programs, build technology-transfer partnerships, and incorporate their deeper understanding of Israel and the region into programs and policies that benefit their campus communities.
