Thank you for your interest in AABGU and our fabulous Great Lakes Region! As Ben-Gurion University approaches its 50th anniversary in 2020, we are poised to become a catalyst of advancement especially in the vital fields of science, medicine, technology, education, social policy, and more.
With cutting-edge research in cyber and homeland security, alternative energy, desert and water research, global health, medical technologies, Israel studies, culture and Jewish thought, high-tech and robotics, among others, the University exemplifies the famous quote of our namesake, David Ben-Gurion, who said, “In Israel, in order to be a realist you must believe in miracles.”
We welcome the opportunity to speak with you about Israel and keep you connected to Ben-Gurion University. We can provide opportunities to meet BGU faculty, offer information about research and programs that interest you, and assist in planning a visit to BGU during your next trip to Israel.
We look forward to getting to know you and helping you find the most meaningful and impactful way to connect to BGU.
