President Varlotta attends conference in Herzliya, Israel

President Varlotta was invited to attend a global policy conference in Israel this summer. The program was sponsored by the Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya (IDC) — a private research university in Herzliya, Israel that was founded on the model of the American Ivy League Universities. The Herzliya Conference is Israel’s foremost global policy annual gathering, bringing together senior Israeli and international participants to address national, regional, and global issues.

In early 2019, Hiram College formed an exchange partnership with the IDC to provide Hiram students with the opportunity to study in Isreal for a semester or a year, while a small number of IDC students come to Hiram and complete requisite courses required for US medical programs.
