Since its establishment, Kinneret College has been a key generator for development of the northern periphery. It provides an institute of higher education accessible for the residents of the region: the cities of Tiberias and Beit Shean, the Golan Heights, the Jordan Valley and the Eastern Galilee.

Kinneret College is designed to boost the social, cultural and economic development of the region. Many of the graduates often remain in the northern periphery of the country after completing their studies. They contribute to the region’s social, cultural and economic development. All told, students, graduates and academic staff enrich the human infrastructure in the region, and contribute to the development of local industry. The college has strong ties with the industry in various fields. Our faculty, staff, and students have the broad expertise to address relevant problems.

Physical Development

The campus includes five permanent buildings and three dormitories, and about 45 portable structures:

  • The Harry Triguboff Science and Technology Center
  • The Robert and Yadelle Sklare Family Library - a modern academic library
  • The Achi Racov School of Engineering
  • The Max Alperin Building
  • The Land of Israel Studies Center - located at the recently restored historic train station at Tzemach

Developing the five-year plan:

In the coming years, the college is planning to construct three more buildings, which will complete the development programs: a classroom building which will serve as an Excellence Center, a Student House and the Humanities and Social Sciences faculty building. At the same time, based on research development at the college, construction work will continue on laboratories and research centers in various field of study.

Student Welfare

The Dean of Student's Office guides, operates and handles a full range of issues relating to student welfare, and helps students to successfully complete their studies.

The Dean of Student's Office provides the students with help, guidance and consulting. The staff offers the students different solutions such as scholarships, emotional support, help with learning disabilities, student accommodation, help for Arabic speaking students, help for new immigrants, Student Advancement Services, and the Social Involvement Unit.

The Dean of Students’ Office, in conjunction with the Student Association, operates a wide range of cultural activities at the college. The Student Association, which is elected by and comprises college students, is responsible for entertainment, culture and social life on and outside the campus during the years of study.
