N. Y. University Forms Advisory Body for Its Program in Israel

The creation of a five-man advisory committee for New York University’s management program in Israel was announced tonight by Dr. Carroll V. Newsom, president of NYU. The program was established earlier this year under an arrangement with the United States International Cooperation Administration, the government of Israel, the Hebrew University and the Technion. New York University is sending nine professors to help the Israeli institution establish educational and professional curricula in industrial management, business administration, and executive management training.

Dr. Newsom made the announcement at a meeting sponsored by the American Technion Society and the American Friends of Hebrew University in the Essex House. He also reported on his recent trip to Israel, during which he visited both the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology in Haifa.

The committee members will be Thomas K. Finletter, attorney and former Secretary of the United States Air Force; The Very Rev. James A. Pike, dean of the Cathedral of St. John The Divine; David Rose, industrialist and president of the American Technion Society; Daniel G. Ross, attorney and president of the American Friends of Hebrew University; and Benjamin Cooper, industrialist and international director of the Technion.
