Florida A&M University students will have another option for study abroad due to a new partnership between the historically Black university and the University of Haifa in Israel.
FAMU students Taylar Hall and London Camel joined FAMU President Larry Robinson and his wife, Sharon Robinson, at Tel Aviv University. The students are on a Millstein Family Foundation Campus Allies Mission to Israel, while President and Mrs. Robinson are part of the Florida delegation to Israel.
The partnership comes as FAMU president Dr. Larry Robinson and his wife, Florida governor Ron DeSantis and other academic, business and political officials recently embarked on a six-day mission to Israel. University officials say the memorandum of understanding will allow FAMU students to explore a new country and culture and cultivate intercultural competency.
“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 Robinson. “I would like to thank Governor DeSantis and Enterprise Florida for providing this opportunity for Sharon and me to join Florida’s impressive delegation on this Business Development Mission.”
