BYU's Jerusalem Center Closed Again

PROVO, UTAH -- The terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and on the Pentagon have led BYU to again cancel classes at its Jerusalem Center, this time for the next full year. The current round of cancellations will mean that the center will have been vacant for nearly two years, if it opens in the Fall of 2002 as now planned.

Students scheduled to attend the center this coming Winter semester and Spring term have received a letter telling them of the cancellation. The letter also told the students that BYU is looking for another option for them to study.

The center first closed during the Fall 2000 semester, when unrest in Israel led the school to close the center 16 days early and bring home students on November 24th. The unrest had by then kept students inside the center much of the semester and cancelled several of the trips outside the center that students normally take.
