UM expands ties to Jerusalem university

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, during a weeklong trade mission to Israel, said the University of Maryland, Baltimore is expanding ties with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Hogan said the "agreement will further strengthen the successful partnership between these world-class universities and help to advance research in Maryland, particularly in the study of military medicine."

He said a memorandum of understanding was signed Sunday "to explore opportunities for joint research or training, exchange scholars for seminars and conferences, and increase the exchange of students and faculty for research, teaching, and study over the next five years."
