Stronger Society

Stronger Society

TAU Aim:

To strengthen TAU as Israel’s academic leader in social responsibility and Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), both at home and abroad.

 

Impact:

  • Will advance the basic Jewish value of tzedaka (charity).
  • Will directly benefit specific causes or groups that a donor passionately supports: children, at-risk youth, disabled, elderly, new immigrants, women, peace groups, etc.
  • Will pull underrepresented groups in Israel into the cycle of elite higher education, innovation and economic mobility.
  • Will instill in TAU students – Israel’s future leaders – active social commitment and a drive for social justice.

Current Statistics:

  • 1,350 students are partnering this year with over 150 organizations to conduct meaningful community projects.
  • The number of Israeli-Arab students rose from 2,300 in 2014 to over 3,400 in 2019 – a 50% rise in enrolment over five years.
  • Ethiopian-Israeli students at TAU rose by 300% since the mid-2000s.
  • Approximately 1,800 students with special needs are enrolled in units across the TAU campus.

Latest Developments:

  • Youth University moved into its own home at the Check Point Building.
  • The Steinhardt Museum welcomed 200,000 visitors in its initial year.
  • The city of Dimona and the Tamar Local Council (Ein Gedi) joined TAU’s “Academic Cities" Program, integrating university-level online courses into their high school curriculum.
