The Council for Higher Education grants official recognition to the Herzliya Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) as a university.

Following the decision, the institution will change its name to “Reichmann University,” after Prof. Uriel Reichmann, who founded the institution 27 years ago.

“Recognizing the Interdisciplinary Center as a university is an important milestone in the evolution of the Israeli higher education system,” says Professor Amnon Rubenstein, chairman of the IDC board of directors. “Were it not for Prof. Uriel Reichmann, who envisioned and executed the IDC’s establishment with extraordinary talent and dedication, the IDC would have never existed, and none is more worthy of having a university named after him.”
