President’s Message

יצחק הרפזMax Stern Yezreel Valley College (YVC) is a young and vibrant college located in the heart of the beautiful Yezreel Valley, the cradle of Israel’s pioneering agricultural settlement. The college is home to over 5,000 students from cities, villages, kibbutzim, and moshavim across the country, who represent Israel’s various religious and ethnic communities. Our student body comprises a colorful, rich and diverse mosaic, which reflects the multicultural fabric of Israeli society.

The secret of YVC’s success and source of its appeal is found in the commitment of its distinguished faculty members to the wellbeing and success of their students combined with the personal attention provided by the dedicated staff. Other attractions include some of the most advanced study facilities in the country, a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion, and hard-working students who aspire to broaden their horizons and acquire the skills needed for leadership and employment in the ever-changing global environment.

Those entering the gates of Yezreel Valley College can sense the vitality and positive spirit permeating its green expanses. This atmosphere of excellence and diligence is felt in the research centers, the classrooms, the simulation center – one of the most advanced in the country, the library, the television studio and radio station and even in the cafeteria and on the college lawn during school-wide cultural events. This uniqueness extends beyond the college gates and is reflected in YVC’s international collaborations and its leading status among Israeli institutions of higher learning.

I invite you to visit the college, to gain a first-hand impression of the personal attention, impressive infrastructure, and the aspirations and dreams we help realize. Be a part of the Yezreel Valley success story!

I look forward to welcoming you,
Professor Itzhak Harpaz
