The establishment of the “Institute for Higher Education in the  Negev” was initiated by the residents of Beer-Sheva and the Negev during the  early 1960s. Teachers from other academic institutions in Israel provided  higher education in Beer-Sheva. Continuous efforts to convince the government  to establish a full-fledged university in the Negev, in southern Israel, were  fruitful, and on November, 9, 1969, Yigal Alon, the Minister of Education and  acting Prime Minister, announced that the Government had decided to build and  support the “University of the Negev.” In November 1970, the first meeting of  the Board of Governors took place, and the “Institute for Higher Education in  the Negev” became the “University of the Negev.”
The University was formally accredited by the Council for Higher Education  (CHE) in 1973 and after the death of David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first and  legendary prime minister, it was officially named “Ben-Gurion University of  the Negev.”
The University started to take shape on the Beit HIAS (a former hostel)  campus in Beer-Sheva during the early 1970s. It gradually came to include  faculties of Natural Sciences, Engineering Sciences, Humanities and Social  Sciences, Health Sciences, a Medical School, Institutes for Applied Research,  an Institute for Desert Research, and the Ben-Gurion of the Negev Heritage  Institute.  
During the second half of the 1970s, the CHE authorized the University to  grant Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Medical Doctor (MD) degrees. The Leon  and
Matilda Recanati School of Community Health Professions was also founded  during this period.
During the 1980s, growth continued, new departments and study programs were  opened, and the number of applications increased. In the early 1990s,  academic cooperation agreements with many institutions throughout the world  were signed, students from abroad were admitted to the University, and the  number of students surpassed 10,000.
The past ten years have been marked by a rapid increase in the number of  students, from about 11,000 in 1995/6 to over 19,500 by 2011/2012. The  Kreitman School of Advanced Graduate Studies, which administers all PhD  studies, was established in 1997, and generous fellowships began to be  offered to outstanding PhD candidates and post-doctoral fellows. During that  period, new departments and study programs were added, among them the School  of Management (which has recently become The Guilford Glazer Faculty of  Business and Management), the Department of Middle East Studies, and the  Department of Politics and Government.
The University has five campuses: (a) three in Beer-Sheva: the Marcus  Family Campus (the main campus), the David Tuviyahu Campus (formerly Beit  HIAS) and the David Bergmann Campus, (b) one in Sede Boqer (south of  Beer-Sheva), which includes: the Jacob Blaustein Institutes for Desert  Research, the Albert Katz International School for Desert Research, and the  Ben-Gurion of the Negev  Research  Institute for the Study of Israel  and  Zionism, and (c) the University’s newest campus in Eilat, established in  2003. The Eilat Campus offers BA and BSc and MA & MSc degrees in several  fields. Approximately 800 students are currently studying there.
Ben-Gurion University of the Negev includes: the Faculty of Humanities and  Social Sciences, the Faculty of Natural Sciences, the Faculty of Engineering  Sciences, the Faculty of Health Sciences, the Faculty of Business and  Management, and the Blaustein Institutes for Desert Research.
