■ VICE PRESIDENT External Relations and Head of the Raphael Recanati International school at IDC Herzliya, Jonathan Davis, is positively kvelling over the fact that a survey conducted by the Israel Student Union of 66 universities and colleges throughout the country found that IDC ranked No. 1 in quality of teaching and was the university most recommended by its students. IDC also scored well in a survey conducted by the Council for Higher Education, ranking in top position in 16 out of 20 categories regarding student satisfaction. A recent committee convened by the Council for Higher Education also gave the IDC’s Lauder School of Government high marks in comparison to other academic institutions. That’s pretty good going for an educational institution that first opened its doors only 17 years ago.

It’s not only native Hebrew speakers who are enthusiastic about IDC. Some 26 percent of the student population come from abroad – 84 countries to be exact – and study in English. What’s even more interesting is that even though IDC has no sports facilities, it is ranked No. 1 in the nation in women’s sports, according to Davis, and No. 2 in men’s sports. As a member of the Academic Sports Association, Ilan Kowalsky, head of the IDC Athletic Program, was recently awarded the prestigious Wingate Institute Prize for Excellence in Sports.
