Two institutions were noteworthy in realizing the establishment of AUA: the Armenian General Benevolent Union (AGBU) and the University of California (UC). The Armenian General Benevolent Union (Հայկական Բարեգործական Ընդհանուր Միութիւն abbreviated as AGBU, established in 1906 is a Non-profit The University of California ( UC) is a Public university system in the state of California. In addition, the Armenian government—in particular the Ministry of Higher Education and Sciences (now the Ministry of Education and Science)—offered financial and logistical support for the university from the start in the face of the turbulent political and economic circumstances in Armenia from the period of 1989–1991. The AGBU underwrote a significant portion of the operational funding required to establish AUA. When the UC was asked for its assistance in founding the university, David P. Gardner, then president of the University of California, appointed a task force led by then Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs William R. For the computer game see Joint Task Force (computer game. A task force (TF is a temporary unit or formation established to work Frazer to evaluate the possibility of an affiliation between the AUA and the UC. After the task force's visit to Armenia in July 1990, the Regents of the University of California voted unanimously in favor of an affiliation with the university. The Regents of the University of California make up the governing board of the University of California. Through this affiliation, the UC provides technical support and experience for the growth of AUA and collaborates with the AUA in preparing a cadre of faculty for the university. When on September 21, 1991 Armenia declared its independence, AUA began instruction with 101 students.
