Israeli Hope in Academia
In the past decades, demographic and cultural changes are reshaping the Israeli society: It changed from a society constructed of a clear majority and minority to a society that is constructed of four central sectors or "tribes" that resemble in their size: secular; national-religious; orthodox; Arabs. in the lights of this reality, a transition is needed from the common perception of "majority and minority" to a new one that is based on partnership between the sectors that construct the Israeli society. The Israeli president, in coordination with the planning and budgeting committee of the Council for Higher Education have launched "Israeli Hope in the Academia", since the academia has an essential role in shaping the "new Israeli order". The project's aim is to base the campuses as spaces for creating shared Israelite society that enables maintaining the unique identity of each group, to express the talents and excellence of the Israeli society, to promote a united vision of partnership in the universities and colleges, to develop an Israeli intellectual, social and diverse leadership that is aware and attentive.
The Hebrew University is proud to be a leading partner in the Israeli Hope in the Academia.
