President Hayuth’s Last Report to Governors:
‘I leave behind me … a University that is well equipped,
financially and academically, to meet the challenges ahead’

In his emotional last report to the Governors as President of the University, Prof. Yehuda Hayuth asserted: “I leave behind me, with great pride, a state-of-the-art Campus and a University that is well equipped, financially and academically, to meet the challenges ahead.”
Describing his stewardship of the University as having been a very exciting period, with tremendous challenges and multiple tasks, the outgoing president continued:
“Before our very eyes, we have seen a campus growing, a university developing, and an academic institution firmly establishing itself.”
President Hayuth, who had first served as acting president prior to his decade-long presidency, noted that this was the 12th year that he was reporting to the Board of Governors. Summing up his feelings, he told the Governors: “When I look back at the years when I was a student at this University, in the first class that was graduated on the new campus on Mt. Carmel; when I look back the period in which I served as a lecturer and researcher; when I review my position as vice president for administration, and finally the terms I served the University as President. When I look back at all this, I can only feel a sense of great satisfaction and pride at the immense development and progress of the University of Haifa.”
Following the presentation of the dry nuts ands bolts of his annual report, he proceeded to pay tribute to the University community: “It has been with the great support both of my colleagues at the University and our many friends in Israel and around the globe that the past decade has been a period full of achievements.”
He congratulated the incoming president. “To Prof. Aaron Ben-Ze'ev and his team, my best wishes for success in their leadership of this University in the future.”
Prof. Yehuda Hayuth, choked with emotion, concluded his report to the assembled Governors, “And to all of you, heartfelt thanks for your support, your confidence, and the trust you have given me.”
