CHANGING THE FACE OF ISRAELI SOCIETY
Ono Academic College is a private academic institution, a registered NGO, attracting a large number of students studying Law, Business Administration, Accounting, Humanities, Health Professions and Music. Our emphasis on excellence finds expression through our faculty of world renowned professors and teachers.
Ono has initiated a series of programs integrated into its regular study framework that are overcoming barriers of advancement created by time and circumstance. Not only is Ono Israel’s fastest growing institute of higher education with more than 10,000 students, its emphasis on academic excellence has been extended into the field of social reform. We have developed programs to aid those who have been deprived of rights, privileges and personal resources enjoyed by the mainstream of Israeli society.
We believe in the power of educational programs to produce leadership that will mend the social gaps.
- We actively recruit students of the Ethiopian Israeli community and provide them with substantial scholarships and a program of support and employment services.
- We have opened a separate campus for ultra-Orthodox students to provide them with an academic environment that respects their religious beliefs and enables them to acquire an academic degree in a professional field.
- Ono recently opened a multicultural MA in Consulting and Counseling for Educational and Social Organizations where mid-career educators from all of Israel’s religious and social sectors study together, and are taught by a multicultural faculty.
Ono is also leading the way in a surprising number of relevant new fields. We offer a Master’s degree in Management related to the quality of the environment. Our concern for the quality of health care in Israel and the need for health professionals has lead us to establish degree programs in Occupational Therapy and Communication Therapy. Faculty members have initiated research institutes dealing with practical issues that are adding to the quality of Israel’s professional expertise on an ongoing basis.
