The campus of the University of Haifa spreads along a Carmel Mountain ridge southeast of the city of Haifa and is surrounded by the Carmel National Park. The University was established in 1963 under the joint auspices of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Haifa Municipality. In 1972, it gained academic accreditation as a separate institution from the Council for Higher Education. The University considers the link between academic excellence and social responsibility as its flagship, and service to the community as one of its important goals. Some 17,000 students are studying toward a degree (B.A., M.A., or Ph.D.) in 2008/09. The University offers six Faculties: Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Science and Science Education, Law, Social Welfare and Health Studies, and Education; and five Schools: Business Administration, Social Work, History, Public Health, and Political Sciences.
