An Extra Soul

This is a University with a conscience, where high standards of research are integrated with community involvement.

The Community Action Department and programs such as Perach bring BGU into the heart of disadvantaged neighborhoods while outreach programs make higher education accessible to all the residents of the region.

There are now over 500 Bedouin students - over half women - at BGU thanks to outreach and retention programs spearheaded by the Center for Bedouin Studies and Development.
