Over a century, what began as a small girls’ school in Birzeit town has become the most prestigious Palestinian university, transforming Palestinian higher education through its impact on community awareness, culture and resistance.
In 1980, Israel issued a military order putting higher education institutions under the mandate of the Israeli military governor, enabling him to control the registration of students and staff recruitment processes; Consequently, Birzeit University launched a national campaign against this military order, which led occupation authorities to halt its implementation.
Birzeit University encourages academic discourse on all key issues, whether they be of local, regional, or international importance, by hosting Palestinian and international academics and researchers in conferences organized by the university’s faculties year-round.
Birzeit University serves as a link between the students/graduates and the community in order to bridge the gap between academic study and its practical application through the career services provided by Innovation & Entrepreneurship Unit (IEU).
