Faculty Development Seminar to Palestine

Palestine (Jerusalem - West Bank)

Seminar Overview: 

To support community colleges and minority-serving institutions, CAORC offers fully-funded overseas seminars that help faculty and administrators gain the requisite first-hand experience needed to develop and improve international courses, curricula, and teaching materials.


This seminar is presented by the Palestinian American Research Center (PARC) with administrative and funding support from CAORC. Now in its 15th year, this annual Faculty Development Seminar (FDS) on Palestine is a competition for U.S. faculty members with a demonstrated interest in, but little travel experience to, Palestine. Applicants may come from any field of study. Each of our two 2024 programs will host 12 U.S. faculty members to participate in roundtable discussions; visits to Palestinian universities, research institutes, and cultural institutions; tours of historic cities; as well as meetings with Palestinian colleagues. Through these activities, participants will learn about the region, deepen their knowledge about their fields of interest in Palestine, and build relationships with Palestinian colleagues and institutions.

More details about eligibility and an application link for this program can be found on the PARC website.
