Florida A&M University and the University of Haifa to Expand Student Study Abroad Opportunities

Historically Black Florida A&M University has partnered with the University of Haifa in Israel to expand study abroad options for FAMU students. Through the new agreement, FAMU students will have the opportunity to study abroad in Israel for an academic year, semester, or summer session.

“Study abroad offers students the opportunity to experience a different country and culture, and to develop intercultural competency, which is essential in today’s increasingly globally interconnected world,” said William Hyndman II, assistant vice president for International Education and Development at FAMU.

“The MOU we signed in Tel Aviv opens a gateway to the rich educational and cultural treasures of the University of Haifa and Israel to FAMU students in various disciplines. This partnership will also expose the University of Haifa community to the incredible students who attend FAMU,” said FAMU President Larry Robinson.
