UMB-Haifa University Collaborative Learning Partnership

Students From Haifa University Visit Baltimore

This month, nine students and three faculty from Haifa University in Israel joined their counterparts from the schools of law, nursing, and social work at the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB) for a week of experiential learning.

Students met with President Jay A. Perman, MD, and the deans of the schools of social work, law, and nursing. They also visited community-university partnerships including Promise Heights, the JACQUES Initiative, and projects in Southwest Baltimore. UMB hosted a series of guest lectures by School of Social Work faculty Lane Victorson, MSW, and Michael Reisch, PhD, MSW, MA, and Jeffrey Johnson, PhD, from the School of Nursing.

Social Work Trip to Israel

In January, an interdisciplinary team of students from the schools of social work, nursing, and law traveled to Haifa University with Corey Shdaimah, PhD, LLM, LLB, associate professor and academic coordinator for the MSW/JD Dual Degree Program; Jane Lipscomb, PhD, RN, FAAN, professor at the School of Nursing and director of the UMB Center for Community-Based Engagement and Learning; and Maryland Carey Law Professor Emeritus Susan Leviton, JD, as part of a course examining issues of social justice and health in Baltimore and Israel.

The course, “Social Justice and Health, Are They Related in my Community?” is a partnership among the University of Haifa Flagship Project, the schools of social work, law, and nursing, and the UMB Global Health Interprofessional Council.

Photovoice Exhibit at Campus Center

The visit culminated in an exhibit from the photovoice project that was part of the course, in which student shared depictions of (in)justice from both countries. The exhibit will remain on display outside of the SMC Campus Center second floor ballroom throughout the month of April.
