Named after Israel’s founder and first Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, the Ben-Gurion University of the Negev was strategically founded in the desert because of Ben-Gurion’s mission. Ben-Gurion worked tremendously hard to make the Negev bloom and become an area where the Jewish people could make major contributions to humanity.
