Wagner College has launched a new partnership with a college in Israel, based on the two institutions’ common commitment to “hands-on, progressive, humanistic education.”
Those are the words of Zipora Libman, president of Kibbutzim College of Education in Tel Aviv, when she visited Grymes Hill in October 2013.
The partnership will encompass faculty and student exchanges and shared research projects. Last November, the two schools held a symposium at Wagner, on the topic of “Educational Leadership for a Humane Culture in a Globalizing Reality.”
“It gives us an opportunity to see what it’s like to teach in other countries and broaden our perspective and understand how to get along with more people,” said Wagner education student Noor Hussain.
