Since its founding Israel has progressed at an astounding pace, but equal access to education and other social resources remain a concern.
Tel Aviv University works to redress gaps in society through novel social investment initiatives.
- Forerunner in Israel in practical, socially oriented programs:
- Free legal clinics
- Institute for Local Government: Hands-on training for municipal leaders
- Gives disadvantaged groups access to a world-class university education
- Launched a plan to get all 5,000 undergraduates volunteering 200,000 hours per year for the benefit of 50,000 people in the community
- Initiated a revolution in university admission: Online courses to replace the standard university entrance exam
Latest Exciting Research:
Volunteerism: Led by Dean of Students Prof. Tova Most, TAU has launched a revolutionary program to get every undergraduate student learning about social leadership in required, accredited courses.
Music: A program run by TAU’s music school in collaboration with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra set up 15 orchestras for over 800 children from distressed and minority communities.
Government: Customized academic training of mayors and their deputies, steered by TAU’s Ophir Pines- Paz, former Minister of the Interior, is helping impoverished and peripheral cities in Israel become solvent and flourish.
