Sapir has just launched three, exciting new programs to mark the start of the 2022-23 school year, while appointing a slate of top-notch academic leaders to take the College forward.
On October 23rd, we launched the academic year welcoming some 8,000 students to Sapir’s campus. New study offerings include an MA program on Innovation and Entrepreneurship; a MA in Art Therapy; and an MSW program for students with bachelor’s degrees in other fields.
Meanwhile, our leadership team welcomes Dr. Omri Herzog as the College’s new Academic Director; Tal Korman, who is heading the new Academia and Employment Division; Dr. Yuval Gozhansky, the new chair of our Communications department; Dr. Leah Shelef, the new dean of our School of Social Work; Anat Zeltzer, tapped to head the MA program in Cinematic Production and Theory at our School of Audio and Visual Arts; and Dr. Ronit Nadiv who will now chair our MA program in Human Resource Management, alongside her role as head of Sapir’s BA program.
Dr. Nir Kedar, President of the College, says this is good news for Sapir and for the entire region. “As we grow, Sapir makes an ever more vital contribution to resilience, employment and education for communities in the Gaza envelope, and the Western Negev as a whole. Nothing says this better than our new students.”
