University Central of Ashdod

 

 

The Panama Canal College (PCC) was established in 1935 in the Panama Canal Zone to serve the servicemembers of the United States of America.  It was chaptered under the United States Panama Canal Authority in 1935 and since  the same year, the Panama Canal College (PCC) was accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association.

 

In 1958, a division of the Panama Canal College was renamed as Ashdod University.  Dr. Yoval Gorovitz and Mrs. Natalia Simpson’s dreams were to establish a Jewish higher learning Institution in the Arts and Humanities, and to educate students in the horror of the Holocaust. They received the support of the Jewish Education Foundation to provide academic programs to Jews and non-Jews alike in the Panama Canal Zone.

In 1999, UCEA was recognized by the Panamanian Government when the United States Government transferred the Panama Canal Zone to the Panamanian Government. We were recognized by articulation agreement by the “Universidad de Panama”. University Central of Ashdod became an autonomous faith-based granted degree institution teaching  in English programs.

 

 The University Central of Ashdod is recognized by Jewish Commission on Education (www.naices.org) to

award baccalaureate, master and doctoral programs. NAICES accreditation is the benchmark for students and employers that ensures the integrity of undergraduate and graduate education. Now, the University Central of Ashdod (UCEA) is part of Hebrew University System and well as Hebrew College (HC) and Panama Canal College (PCC).
