The president of YU, Dr.  Zeidan Kafafi, met Dr. Stefania Chlouveraui of the University of Athens in Greece, where they discussed ways to enhance cooperation between the two sides in various fields of archaeology and anthropology.

During the meeting, Kafai stressed the keenness of YU to open channels of communication and cooperation with various European educational institutions, which contributes to experience exchange and knowledge acquisition for faculty members and students. He added that YU’s administration seeks to encourage faculty members to attract international projects in various fields to enhance the university's rank and scientific research.

Kafafi expressed his pride of the Faculty of Archaeology and Anthropology, and its distinguished faculty members, pointing to the need to strengthen cooperation between the two universities considering the many heritage sites in Jordan that need to be studied to understand the history of humanity and preserve our ancient cultural heritage.
