The Schusterman Visiting Israeli Professors program began in 2006 with eight visiting professors. Through 2008-09, a total of 52 visiting professors and teaching post-doctoral fellows (VIPs) taught at 40 different American colleges and universities. This study, which represents three years of tracking VIPs and graduate fellows (2006-07, 2007-08, 2008-09) reveals enthusiasm for the program—the classes, extracurricular activities, and graduate fellowships—as well as challenges and policy opportunities. In its first four years, the program has had a significant influence on host institutions and their students, local and national communities, and the field of Israel Studies.
