Placing Uni Steadfastly in Community
When Rivki Carmi was merely 20 years old and was in the Israeli army, she was responsible of commanding more than 100 soldiers.
Further, it was recently claimed by the president of the Negev-based Ben-Gurion University, â€śI had to make decisions (of the sort) that I didn't have to make again until years laterâ€ť.
Like many others belonging to her generation, Carmi got involved in the mandatory national service. Recalling the steps, the prominent geneticist, who made scene at the top job in BGU earlier during the year 2006, has nothing on account of doubt whether or not it was apt for her and for a number of others like them.
While expressing her opinion regarding the entire scenario, she added: â€śYoung people in Israel who are 18 to 21 years old are being trusted with projects and equipment that they will not be trusted with again until years laterâ€ť.
It is extremely good in terms of growing up and also it getting habitual of the experience of entrepreneurship and leadership for later stages. However, the advantage need not necessarily be reaped only by the means of military services, some sort of â€śnationalâ€ť service will do the job fairly as well, at least till the time it focuses the young brigade on solving community issues.
It is primarily one of the establishing principles of BGU, titled for the first prime minister of Israel, David Ben-Gurion, and sowed in the desert that the country was seriously committed towards making a full bloom.
Also, it has been revealed that the territory of BGN includes a marginal immigrant populace of around 200,000 that was drawn from the regions of North Africa, the earlier Soviet Union and, now, Ethiopia, along with Arab Bedouins.
