Ariel College Becomes University

Ariel College has officially now become Ariel University – and its news celebrated in Israel. As Yehuda Danon, president of the institution said: “It was a long marathon, the opposition stems from academic jealousy and budget concerns, and of course it is also linked to politics.” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: “After decades, the state has an additional university, it further strengthens higher education in Israel.”

As the Foreign Minister of Israel Avigdor Lieberman celebrated “There is room for the establishment of another university, and there is room to place it in Ariel.”  Gideon Saar, another Likud minister said “Making AUC Israel’s eighth university is the right move for the country’s higher education system.”

Board members of The Ariel University Center including Cherna Moskowitz, the president of the Irving Moskowitz Foundation celebrated the news.
