program that turns BGU and the Negev into a platform for understanding today’s global challenges and becoming part of the needed solutions. The second Halutz cohort is made up of 15 enthusiastic participants from seven countries, each of whom is new to the BGU family. In this immersive program, they gain knowledge and become vehicles for change. They also become ambassadors of BGU and Israel in their home countries, building new networks of support for BGU research and activities. I’m pleased to say that members of the first cohort have joined the Global Campaign Committee and are already involved in this important initiative to ensure BGU’s advancement in the next decade. In this issue of BGU & You you'll hear more about the efforts of the Global Campaign Committee and our global network of associates organizations and the many donors who are fueling these efforts. It’s a wonderful time to be at BGU where our values guide our efforts, reflect our optimism, and can serve as a rallying point in these challenging times. Your involvement is meaningful to us, and we’re glad to have you by our side as we embrace the future. I encourage you to be in touch and to visit the University; I can be reached at or +972-50-226 1206.

Yours sincerely,

Jeff Kaye Vice President for Public Affairs and Resource Development
