The Jewish-Arab Center
Established: 1972

Located in the north of the country where the majority of Israel's Palestinian community reside, the number of Arab students attending the University of Haifa has always been the highest of any university in Israel and today stands at 20 percent of the overall student body. The Jewish-Arab Center was established to help provide answers to the socio-academic needs of the University's Arab students and to contribute to the mutual understanding between Jews and Arabs on campus and in Israeli society at large.
