The Academic-Community Partnership was established as part of the social responsibility of the University of Haifa towards the communities within the city. It's aim is to develop a partnership between academia and the local community.
The program encourages social solidarity by joining students and faculty's academic knowledge and skills with communities in the city of Haifa, aiming to promote communities that suffer from social exclusion.
The program's goal is to promote social activism and provide accessibility of knowledge in order to change and improve their current situation.

Israeli society is faced with troubling phenomena of social inequality and exclusion. One wonders about the the role of the academy in promoting an inclusive and solidarity society.
