Exploring Israel

In early January, a WUSTL delegation headed by Chancellor Mark S. Wrighton visited Israel to continue the Universitys ongoing interest in learning more about higher education around the world. Above, trip participants (from left) Edward F. Lawlor, Ph.D., dean of the George Warren Brown School of Social Work and the William E. Gordon Professor; Barry Rosenberg, executive vice president of the St. Louis Jewish Federation; 1958 alumnus Thomas R. Green; Wrighton; St. Louis Mayor Francis G. Slay; Larry J. Shapiro, M.D., executive vice chancellor for medical affairs and dean of the School of Medicine; and Edward S. Macias, Ph.D., executive vice chancellor, dean of Arts & Sciences and the Barbara and David Thomas Distinguished Professor in Arts & Sciences, pause in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. Wrighton and others met with governmental officials and university leaders to learn more about possibilities for greater international understanding and cooperation. The University also hosted a special event for its alumni living in Israel.
