Creating the Change Agents of Today

  • Prof. Mulford Sibley’s work created a “precious oasis in the midst of the concrete and bricks” on the West Bank.

  • What’s really exciting about the Mulhollem Cravens program is the breadth of the experience that it gives students.

  • “If you take the past and understand the context, it can help you navigate [the] now.”

  • We are preparing the next generation of global citizens.

  • When CLA students get asked: What are you going to do with that degree? They will be ready.
