In recent years the School of Government and Social Policy has become a large gathering place in Israel for professionals from the public sector, who come to the campus once a week in order to acquire an education that will advance them towards obtaining an academic degree (the degree is granted by the Open University).
In the modern world, it is impossible to advance professionally or personally without an academic degree. The school aims to make this possible for all, to provide a second opportunity to those who did not pursue an education in the past or who find it difficult to set foot in a university or college today. It is a home for all those interested in pursuing knowledge and education.
The school’s vision is not only to make higher education accessible to all, but also to facilitate social change in Israel. It strives to improve the level of the public sector through education that centers on knowledge and at the same time cultivates values of proper, professional governance and a fair, egalitarian society. The school is proud to pass on values in addition to academic knowledge.
The programs of study in the school are flexible and suitable for working people. Therefore, the curriculum relates to their practical world and contributes to their promotion in their work places.
