Our Vision

The Faculty of the Humanities and Social Sciences will be the first choice for researchers and students in Israel because of its excellence in research, first-rate teaching, and contribution to the well-being of society in Israel in general, and the Negev in particular.

​​The research carried out in the Faculty will advance human knowledge, create ​research partnerships between different entities, and contribute to the development of new teaching programs.

The Faculty strives to build a committed academic community based on intellectual openness, critical awareness, curiosity, open and respectful discourse, and to be a community which continually challenges its assumptions.

The Faculty aspires to create an academic community committed to research and to the education of our students for whom we should be role models. 

Our graduates should have a broad education and a desire to continue learning, be enterprising, be leaders, solve problems, think outside of the box and be committed to having a positive impact on society.

The Faculty works to build bridges between academia and the broader community willingly sharing its knowledge and expertise in order to create a just and democratic society.
