Maxwell School welcomes students
from the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) of Herzliya, Israel
Sixteen students from IDC came to the Maxwell School on September
24th for a three week program in which they will study policy,
politics and conflict. The course will take place on campus on
Syracuse University and include site visits to Washington, DC.
In 1996, representatives of The Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) of
Herzliya, Israel and the Maxwell School of Syracuse University began
discussions to identify areas where the two institutions could
collaborate. Leaders from IDC visited Syracuse University and the
Maxwell School in the Fall of 1996, and in 1997 Syracuse sent a
delegation of faculty and administrators to visit the IDC. In Fall 1998,
leaders of IDC returned to Syracuse for additional talks. This
Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is one of the results of the meetings
and underscores the intention of both institutions to establish a formal
relationship that will benefit students and faculty over the long term.
