Strengthening the Community

To University of Haifa, commitment to strengthening its local community is a top priority and a key component of measuring its success. The University sees itself as an integral part of society where instance, the underprivileged seek help with childcare at our interdisciplinary nursery clinics for hearing problems, and where Law Clinics address the concerns of neglected citizens – the elderly, sick children and women at risk who have poor access to legal representation.

The Rector’s flagship projects are part of the University’s approach to promoting solidarity and minimising social exclusion. One such project is the Ethiopian heritage preservation project which includes the documentation and collection of stories of the community, for the benefit of future generations. Another project involves Gerontology students who study alongside the local elderly community and actively address the issues concerning them.
