From the Rose Report:
Israel education also takes place in the classroom. In early 2010, the Rose Project was asked to assist in bringing a full-time Israeli professor to UCI. This brings a unique and first-hand perspective to the students and faculty of UCI, as well as the members of the greater Orange County Jewish community. Professor Menachem Hofnung, an expert in political science, is the 2010-2011 Schusterman Visiting Israeli Professor at the University of California, Irvine. His appointment at UCI is part of the Israel Scholar Development Program that is coordinated by the American-Israeli Cooperative Enterprise (AICE) and funded by grants from The Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation and the Rose Project of Jewish Federation & Family services Orange County.
