President Bush said of the "new campus" that was founded under the leadership of the Higher Education Board and the Planning and Budgeting Chairman. "Since I took office, I have been promoting the Israeli Hope initiative in academia, with the planning committee and with the committee of the savings committee, colleges and universities. This is the first and last place academics meet before students from all social sectors join the work world One of our strategic goals is to strengthen the links between academia and employment and to increase academia's commitment to academic achievement, especially in the areas of graduates, especially Arab and Harvey. "Not only is the new campus an opportunity, but it has also changed the changing Israeli reality." Recently, we read the hardships of providing higher education to Haredi men, and this week's figures show the Haredi people Included. This is a warning signal to our society and our economy. I am confident that the new campus initiative can address two challenges: to link academia and employment, and to include Arab and Haredi societies in fair employment. I believe that the Israeli academia should play a positive, creative and meaningful role without looking at the new Israeli society as a spectator. "
