Bethlehem University Welcomes Students of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart – School of Law

Sacred heartBethlehem University was happy to welcome a delegation of visiting law students from the university, led by Professor Claudia Mazzucato. Through her work and studies, she came to know Dr. Sami Adwan and was interested in visiting him at his university while also having the chance to hear Fr. Jamal Khader speak. Meeting and communication with Palestinian students was also a goal of the visit. The group was met by Br. Joe Loewenstein - Special Projects, Fr. Jamal Khader - Dean of Dean of Arts Office/Religious Studies, Dr. Sami Adwan - Professor of Education and Mr. Demitri Awwad - Guest Relations.

The Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore or Catholic University of the Sacred Heart is a prestigious and leading university founded in 1921. Its main campus is located in Milan, Italy with satellite campuses in Brescia, Piacenza, Cremona, Rome, and Campobasso. The Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore is the biggest private university in Europe and the biggest Catholic university in the world.

Sacred heartAfter a tour, a brief discussion was held with student ambassadors to give the visitors an idea of real life for students in Palestine. Such visits help to build bridges and relationships between students and instructors by which experience, knowledge and other resources can be shared. As two unique Catholic universities, there is a natural relationship which we hope to see bear more and more fruit.

Bethlehem University looks forward to welcoming back our visitors soon!

Thanks to our students ambassadors:
