Creating a new campus for Tel-Hai College that would allow it to grow, was a complex project requiring long-term commitment and cross-sector collaboration. In recognition of the leading role played by Rashi through a substantial investment of financial and professional resources, the campus was named after the Foundation's founder Gustave Leven.
The campus was built in stages over more than 7 years; it was inaugurated in 2008 and includes now three multi-purpose buildings with lecture halls, classrooms, laboratories, an auditorium and faculty rooms, as well as an academic library. These facilities, which serve thousands of students, share a high standard of quality that compares with that of leading universities in Israel.
Meanwhile, the next generation of future students is taking the first steps toward higher education at the Academic Center for Youth we helped to establish on the College's older campus.
Operating in cooperation with the Migal Research Institute in nearby Kiryat Shmona, the Center enables high school students throughout the region to experience hands-on laboratory work in an advanced learning environment. Opened in 2010 and expanded within three years to accommodate the rapidly growing scope of activity, it will become part of a nationwide network of science centers for youth we are developing.
