University of Haifa and the Neri Bloomfield School of Design have signed a historic agreement that will usher in a new era of education and innovation in diverse design disciplines. As part of the new merger, the WIZO Academic Center will become The School of Design and will continue to operate at its current location in the German Colony in downtown Haifa.
“With this new agreement, which has been in development for several years, the University of Haifa moves closer to fulfilling its mission of enhancing educational experiences for our student population and increasing opportunities for social mobility and growth. With a campus for Design in the German Colony and the Technological Campus spread over multiple buildings in Haifa’s downtown core, we are better positioned to strengthen the social fabric of the region and the city.” – President Ron Robin
“This merger is good news for Haifa and will be of great benefit to our students who will be offered new fields of study in high demand such as visual communications, architecture, photography and graphic design, fashion and environmental design and education… New fields in design and architecture at the University of Haifa will promote interdisciplinary cooperation, especially in sustainability-related fields.” – Rector Gur Alroey
