Thank you for your interest in Ben-Gurion University Canada! Our primary mission at BGU Canada is to Support the Vision of Israel’s first Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, who believed that “the future of Israel will emerge from the Negev.”
Ben-Gurion University (BGU) is the only university located in Israel’s southern desert region which comprises 60% of that country’s land mass. The university is a catalyst for the advancement 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.
We welcome the opportunity to speak with you about Israel and keep you connected to BGU. 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 way to Support the Vision.
