Gordon Academic College
Gordon Academic College (GACE) was established in 1953 and is accredited to bestow B.Ed. and M.Ed. degrees. Located in Haifa, GACE serves Israel's northern peripheral areas and populations. It is a multicultural institution and has 2,500 students and over 250 faculty members representing the ethnic, religious and cultural groups of Israel's North (Jews, Muslims, Christians, and Druse). It is the only teaching college that has a program to teach about Druze Traditions for Israel’s Druze Educational system. GACE was the first teaching college in the country to establish a Multicultural Educational Resource Center whose goals include training teachers in cultural diversity and to enhance attitudes of tolerance and co-existence among diverse groups in Israel. It has also implemented numerous community programs with immigrant and minority groups. GACE coordinated a TEMPUS IV 5th Program and is now coordinating an ERASMUS+ Program and has been a partner in a number of Capacity Building programs.
