Haifa University visits Baltimore

In January 2015, an interdisciplinary team of students from the Schools of Social Work, Nursing, and Law traveled to Haifa University in Israel, and in the following April, nine students from Haifa University joined their counterparts at the University of Maryland Baltimore for a week of experiential learning. One of the highlights of the week was an event to showcase photographs taken as part of a project to examine social justice and poverty in Haifa and Baltimore.
