Update: Israel study abroad program coming home

07-17-2006

Given the expanding violence and threats in the Middle East, with the safety and security of our students and people foremost in mind, MSU has decided to withdraw our current study abroad program from Israel. It was a difficult decision, with strong arguments made on both sides. But ultimately, the real question was whether there was a compelling reason to continue the program in light of the current circumstances.

One of the students is already home. The rest are expected to be back in Michigan soon. Provost Kim Wilcox writes in greater detail about the decision-making process and the considerations that went into reaching it on his site.
