Vice Chancellor, Brother Peter Bray, FSC. EdD


Chris Faisandier, who worked with many Bethlehem University faculty and staff a few years back during the preparation of the last strategic plan and the planning of the Mount David project, is returning to Bethlehem University. However, this time he is coming with twenty people, including current and former Australian educational leaders and their partners. Chris, with the assistance of Mr. Hani Abu Dayyeh, has prepared a two week exposure tour for these community leaders. From his many visits to Bethlehem University, Chris knows that the best way to begin to understand Palestine is to spend time with Palestinians in Palestine.

Chris has asked me to invite University faculty and staff to consider volunteering to accommodate a member or couples from the party for either their three day stay or to host an evening meal. The options are to host one or two guests for three nights (Monday 29th April, Tuesday 30th April and Wednesday 1 May, 2019) or to host one or two guests at an evening meal on Thursday May 2, 2019 (or both!).

Chris will provide more information to anyone interested in helping out. EITHER contact him on his email: OR if you would like to know more information about this proposal please advise Gloria Handal and Chris will be respond to the questions.
