Certificate of appreciation for special activities
Peres Academic Center recognizes social excellent as a value to encourage and cultivate.
Special activities are activities that go beyond the students’ personal needs and interests throughout their studies (for example, mentorship volunteering, organization of ceremonies at the Center, community volunteering and work, and more).
Students who contributed in one or more areas defined as “special activities” by the program will be brought for discussion before a committee headed by the Dean of Students. The committee will decide which students will receive certificates of appreciation.
Such certificates are intended to empower the students in their work, and encourage them to continue with their valuable work, to expand and develop it to new horizons, and to encourage additional students to contribute, volunteer, initiate, make an impact, affect positive change, and develop original and creative ways for improving life within and outside of the academic community.
The Center will not be obligated to grant appreciation certificates every year.
