National Union of Israeli Students
The National Union of Israeli Students (NUIS) is the sole organization representing over 300.000 students in 61 higher education institutes and vocational schools in Israel. We believe the young public in Israel, comprising almost half of Israel’s population, is the living force of society. NUIS was established in 1934, before the establishment of the state of Israel itself.
The Student Union’s activity is widespread and includes a variety of activities portraying its worldview regarding the students’ role, responsibilities and benefits within the Israeli society. The union is composed of professional departments enacting the decisions made for and with the student community in addition to local student unions in each of the higher education institutes. The central role of the union is to protect the student's status and rights while at the same time strengthening its social purpose as the leading body driving lively activity among the public.
