FHSU faculty to participate in fellowship program in Israel


HAYS, Kan. – Dr. Babu George, associate professor of management and international coordinator in Fort Hays State University’s W.R. and Yvonne Robbins College of Business and Entrepreneurship, was selected to participate in the 2018 Jewish National Fund Winter Faculty Fellowship Program in Israel.

George, along with 27 other participants from colleges across the United States, will travel to Israel for two weeks, starting in Haifa and ending in Tel Aviv.

U.S. universities that will be represented include Temple University, the University of California-Davis, the University of Texas-El Paso, Arizona State University, Stetson University, Cornell University, Washington State University, the University of Florida, Rochester Institute of Technology, and Loyola University-New Orleans.

Participants will meet Israelis from all walks of life and hear from a variety of speakers. They will also be exposed to contemporary Israeli society, culture, historical sites, the people and the way of life in Israel.

Professors will also have the opportunity to meet with professors of similar disciplines with the goal of developing collaborations, research projects, co-authoring articles, and establishing exchange programs between faculty and students. George aims to discuss possibilities of developing inter-institutional partnerships in business and allied areas.

Those who take part in the program will develop a deeper awareness of Israel as a nation and how the country addresses regional and global challenges.
