Israel Unlimited believes that access to higher education is a right that all students deserve. And though Israel ratified the standards set forth by the UN’s Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in 2012, the country still lacks higher education programs for students with disabilities who do not meet acceptance requirements as ‘non-traditional students.’ The importance of higher education isn’t just measured in degrees. Rather, students learn important skills that they take with them into the job force—skills like public speaking, advanced social skills, research skills and more. With Being a Student, Israel Unlimited is working to give students with disabilities the opportunities for higher education they deserve.
Currently on three campuses in Israel, the program had over 50 students in its innagural year.
