Nazareth is the largest Arab city in Israel. Education Minister Shay Piron said he hoped the new campus would become an alternative for Israeli Arabs who might otherwise go to Arab countries for university studies.

“I see the new campus as another significant step in the integration of Israeli Arabs into society,” Piron said. “The goal is that Arabs and Jews will study as one at the campus.”
