IDC Herzliya – An Innovative Approach to Success

IMG_9748

An open-door policy enables students and faculty to work together; support for reservists returning from army duty is unreserved; counseling and assistance ensures that students can devote their entire attention to the task at hand; and campus life includes a wealth of extracurricular activities, sports and an atmosphere not unlike that found at the best private universities in the United States and around the world.

 

A gateway to home

Debate clubs, AEPI fraternity, the Ambassador’s Club, entrepreneurial clubs, film clubs, campus radio and parties, on one hand, the Mincha club, Shabbatonim, Hillel, Friday night dinners and the weekly Shi’ur, on the other…

If melting pots were meant to provide the flavor and nutrition of the world at large, IDC certainly fulfils the promise. Certainly, the opportunity to study, network and befriend for life like-minded individuals from all corners of the earth provides a healthy basis for future success; conversely, IDC is also providing an excellent education to students who wish to spend some time in a country as unique and exemplary as is the State of Israel.

While here, they receive an excellent education and enjoy the communal life, the cultural activities, the trips and the campus life that IDC offers. But they also have the opportunity to weigh the assets and liabilities of living here – a decision that can best be taken over a period of time and in full communion with the land and its people. Indeed, after graduation, a full 70 percent of our students make Israel their home. A considerable number later join the IDF, taking the degrees and experience they acquired at IDC Herzliya and putting them to good use while serving their new country. The others – perhaps assisted by IDC’s unique David Project advocacy training plan – become superb ambassadors when they return to their communities abroad.

All of them – Israelis new and old, and foreign students alike – will remember their juncture at the Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center as a cherished experience that helped them succeed living their potential to the fullest.
