"Ohalo College is a pioneering academic center, shaping and empowering future generations"
Ohalo aims to shape a new generation of high quality teachers who will become a "spearhead" of relevant, future-oriented and value-committed teaching in Israel, with a special emphasis on the northern region. The college guides and nurtures tomorrow's leading educators so they will inspire and lead the next generation towards becoming contributing members of society: active, productive and innovative participants in tomorrow's economy, in a dynamic global reality and an ever-changing world of knowledge. We strive to develop and promote the surrounding regions and turn them into thriving modern economic centers, as part of Israel's global operation.
Ohalo leads and nurtures excellence among staff, students and partners in the educational endeavors.
Ohalo will be positioned as a leading academic college in terms of innovative education (pedagogically and technologically)
Ohalo will be recognized by the Israeli Council for Higher Education as a college that meets all necessary academic and administrative criteria
Ohalo will function as the educational core of the Galil University which will be established in the future.
Importantly, today's teachers are faced with the challenges of bestowing their students with (in addition to knowledge of basic subjects) the skills and tools to help them be creative and innovative and contend with the challenges of life. They will need to help students develop their inter-personal communication and teamwork, creativity, aptitude to problem solving, flexibility and adaptability, self-management, self-development and systems thinking. Through the many courses that deal with leadership and means of leading educational change within the formal and informal educational systems, we are training our students to become the best educational leaders of the 21st century. At the same time, the college recognizes the importance of communicating with the heterogeneous population of the northern periphery (secular, religious and Haredi Israelis, Bedouin, Druze, Christians, Muslims, new immigrants and others) in order to create sensitive multi-cultural layouts.
