Education minister expresses satisfaction over AUC upgrade

Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar on Monday expressed "satisfaction" at the decision to upgrade Ariel University Center (AUC) to official university status.
"An important process has been completed during the current government term - a process which I led despite numerous irrelevant objections," Sa'ar said. "Making the AUC Israel's eighth university is the right move for the country's higher education system."
