Dear Colleagues,

Please join the Department of Urban Studies, the Department of Sociology, the Division of Social Sciences, and the Center for Ethnic, Racial and Religious Understanding for a discussion regarding the challenges of Diversity and Inclusion within the Israeli context. The discussion will focus on efforts of two change makers to create an inclusive space within higher education for Palestinian citizens of the State of Israel.

We will hear from Professor Mona Khoury-Kassabri, who has recently been named Dean of the School of Social Work at Hebrew University, and Dr. Sarah Ozacky-Lazar, Director of the Forum for the Promotion of Arab Society in Israeli Academia at the Van Leer Institute in Israel. President Matos Rodriguez will offer opening remarks.

The event will be held in the President's Conference Room #2 in the Rosenthal Library from 12:15-2:00 on Thursday September 27th.

A free Kosher lunch will be served. Please RSVP so we have an idea of how many people we are serving:


All Best,

Sophia McGee
