Drug Prevention

Israeli national policy regarding the issue of drug use and abuse has three distinct but related dimensions: education and prevention, treatment, and legislation.

The Anti-Drug Authority Law (1988) established the Anti-Drug Authority of Israel whose main function is to formulate policy with regard to the prevention of drug abuse, treatment, and rehabilitation of drug addicts and enforcement of the laws and penalties pertaining to drug abuse. In addition, the Authority is to actively pursue these policies by coordinating activities between Government offices and between Government and non-government bodies in Israel that deal with drugs, to encourage and support research in the area of drug abuse, to establish ties with agencies abroad who work in this field, and to encourage the training of personnel needed to deal with the problem of drug abuse in this country.

The other relevant laws refer to the medicinal use of controlled substances - required permits and conditions of possession, registration of drug recipients; drug testing for traffic violators; drug testing among soldiers; and imposed treatment for convicted drug addicts.

Israeli drug legislation conforms to regulations of the "Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs" treaty of 1961 and its amendment of 1972, of which Israel is a signatory member, and the "Convention of Psychotropic Substances" of 1971, to which Israel abides but is not a member. The "Convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances" (1988) has been signed by Israel but not yet ratified.

For help please contact the University of Haifa Berman Counseling Center.

Student Right to Know

Upon a student request, materials, which contain information directly, related to a student’s financial aid, disciplinary records, admissions file, and academic record will be made available for review. 

Review the FERPA guidelines here: https://www2.ed.gov/policy/gen/guid/fpco/ferpa/students.html

Fraud policy

Any suspicion of fraudulent activity will be reported to the approved authorities and will have serious ramifications on the future participation in the financial aid program and could lead to dismissal from the University.

Confidentiality policy

All students, faculty, administration, guests, and visitors must show appropriate identification sign in with the security guard at the entrance of the building.

Access to computer data and files is secured by password coding and internal file security. Electronic material is protected with current technological safeguards to prevent unauthorized access. Paper records are similarly held in safe storage and disposed of when necessary in a proper manner.

Missing Students 

When a student cannot be located and there is a concern for his/her well-being, Campus Security will classify this student as a "missing person". The dorm supervisor is the first person to start the chain of action. The dorm supervisor will notify the program head and the program head will notify security. Security/ Program Coordinator will notify the student’s designated contact person or/and the student’s parent or guardian. Security/Program Coordinator will contact and file a missing report with the Haifa police within 24 hours.

Services Available to Students with Disabilities
