  • History & Memorable Moments

The University of Haifa was founded in 1963 by the mayor of the city of Haifa Abba Hushi, under the academic auspices of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The Eshkol Tower [1]

In its first year 472 students attended the University. Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences were offered in the following departments: Biblical Studies, Hebrew Literature and Language, Jewish History, General History, French Literature and Language, English Literature and Language, Arabic Literature and Language, Geography, Sociology, and Political Science. The academic staff included 180 teachers, 50 out of them were Haifa residents. [1]

In 1967, the Institute awarded a diploma to its first graduates, 75 in number, three quarters of whom intended to be teachers. [1]

The first home of the Institute was in Erdstein House in the Hadar HaCarmel section of Haifa, but it soon became too crowded. The University moved to Merkaz HaCarmel, and was housed in the building that now serves the Fifth Municipal High School. In 1966 the University moved to the top of Mount Carmel, where its current main campus is located. [1]

The institution's first building, the "Multi-Purpose Building", was erected in 1966. It contained classrooms, halls, laboratories, a library with 110,000 books, and a cafeteria. The well-known Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer planned the campus, to include all the University's facilities in one complex. [1]

The university of Haifa has been ranked 10th among 36 academic institutes in Israel, according to Above Average ranking institute[citation needed]. This was a 6 point rise over the 2006 ranking. The ranking was based on feedback from 8,600 students. [1]
