Given that the future of Israel’s leadership of Israel is within its campuses, the Hebrew University sees as its responsibility to develop our students’ multicultural sensitivities and tolerance. By providing perspective and insight to multiple points of view, we believe we can improve relationships across society, and ultimately improve campus life as well as the world at large.

To that end, the Center for the Study of Multiculturalism and Diversity (CSMD) at Hebrew University explores issues of multiculturalism and diversity through both an academic and practical lens. The Center rigorously supports academic research on multiculturalism, offers academic events, including interfaith study and dialogue circles, for the purpose of exploring the intriguing intersections of the Israeli mosaic.

One of the Center’s key programs is the Clinic for the Study of Multiculturalism and Diversity. The interdisciplinary nature of the Clinic allows for a holistic treatment to a host of burning cultural issues. Our Cultural Accessibility of the Juvenile Probation Services seeks to encourage access to the justice system, promote alternatives to arrest, and fostering true rehabilitation. The Profiling Project seeks to end ethnic discrimination through legal petition. The case was supported further by an information campaign on profiling entitled Stop Profiling: Look at Me which aims to increase awareness of this phenomenon.

These activities are designed to offer students a chance at increased interaction with students who may come from a different background. Ultimately, our aim is to create a more welcoming and inclusive university environment overall, and expose students to the concept of diversity as life enhancing.
