Ariel University began modestly as a regional college in the 1980s. In 1994, at AU fewer than 300 students were pursuing academic degrees. After a period of accelerated growth the number of students registered for the 2008-2009 academic year reached 11,000.
The fabric of Israeli society continues to become more complex from day to day. Its basic diversity, while providing a rich panorama of cultural expression, also opens the door to problems of alienation and tension between different population groups. The leadership of Ariel University believes that by pursuing the goals it was founded upon, it will play an important role in mending the gaps between these groups and provide new opportunities for all of their students to realize their personal potential to the fullest.
From its inception, Ariel University has integrated research and development into its prime goal of educating the next generation of Israelis. The founders of the AU foresaw the contribution that cutting edge Israeli science and technology could provide back when the country's main exports were still agricultural. The influx of newcomers from the Former Soviet Union during the 1990s presented an even greater opportunity. Harnessing the creativity and knowledge of Russian-trained scientists, AU ventured into new fields of endeavor.
