By reaching out to every corner of Israeli society – religious and secular Jews, newcomers, multi-generational veteran Israelis, Arabs – without regard to political or religious beliefs or economic status, AUC has created a culturally diverse student body that learns to live and work together. By channeling resources to groundbreakingresearch and assembling a first-rate faculty, AUC maintains high standards as a world-class research institution, providing all its students access to academic excellence. By keeping its finger on the pulse of the needs of the Israeli economy, both in industry and public services, AUC has created an innovative curriculum applicable to employment and career opportunities. By requiring its students to study at least one course every semester related to Jewish and Israeli heritage, AUC has created a cadre of young Israelis whose personal identity is linked to the future of the country and World Jewry. The combination of these goals has made Ariel University Center Israel’s fastest growing institution of higher education. Future growth depends upon resources. The objective is to reach a student population of more than 20,000 students. To accomplish this, AUC needs to expand its state-of-the-art facilities and attract more faculty and researchers who are motivated to pioneer in their fields of interest.
