Dr. Dalia Fadila

President of Al Qasemi Engineering and Science College

Dr. Dalia Fadila is currently president of Al Qasemi Engineering and Science College. She has served in the past 8 years as provost of Al-Qasemi Teacher Training College, an Arab college of education in Israel and acted as the president of the college during 2006. She is also a fellow member of the "EU Leadership Program," and "USA International Leadership Program". Dr. Fadila is an expert on organizational development, educational entrepreneurship, and a researcher of American literature, women's literature and ethnic studies. She has led and managed national and international seminars and projects on issues of gender, culture, identity and education. Of deep concern to her, are promoting quality education for underprivileged students in general and Arab students in Israel, in particular, through establishing an alternative schooling system, and empowering women as educators, entrepreneurs and leaders. She has established private schools for teaching English called Q Schools - English Language and HR Development that propose a unique approach to learning/teaching English as space for intellectual and personal empowerment; the approach is particularly suited to underprivileged students and stems from the need of these students to develop personally and professionally. Dr. Fadila is currently also faculty member of the International School for Leadership and Diplomacy at IDC-Inter Disciplinary Center in Hertzelya and member of the governmental Civil-Service Higher Committee, fellow of the Taub Center for Social Policy Research in Israel, President Ruoven Revlen Committee for Education for a Shared Life, and member of the board of Governors of Haifa University.
