Family & Children’s Services along with OU-Tulsa welcomed students from Israel this week during a lunch at Women In Recovery. Staff from F&CS and OU-Tulsa hosted students and faculty from the Haruv Institute, Hebrew University, Israel’s leading authority on child abuse and neglect. Students participated in a four- day exchange study program discussing topics and services related to child maltreatment. The Haruv Institute, established by the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, and OU-Tulsa have formed an international student exchange program. The students visited various community agencies, and traveled to Tahlequah , Oklahoma City, and Norman. The visit allowed students and faculty to discuss, compare and study issues of child abuse and neglect in each other’s countries as well as services, solutions and practices to address these problems.
