It is a great honor for me to welcome you to the website of Birzeit University.
Notwithstanding the tortured past and troubled present of our people and despite the enormous challenges that lie ahead, I have confidence in Birzeit University's future. I believe strongly that Birzeit will admirably continue to be the premier Palestinian university, providing distinguished teaching, research and community service and attracting the best students and academics, while continuing to strive to be one of the best universities in the Arab region in the medium term and a world-class university in the long run.
Education at Birzeit University has prepared well and inspired two generations of men and women in their lifelong endeavours, as indubitably attested to by the university's eminent alumni, who have pursued distinguished careers in politics, business, education, science, culture and the arts in Palestine, and, indeed, throughout the Arab region and beyond.
Birzeit University has been built on solid foundations by the toil and sacrifices of many of people over many years - past and present students, faculty, staff and administrations. I trust that the university community will preserve and advance this great institution of which we Palestinians can justly be proud. As a result, the university will go from strength to strength and in the process serve the Palestinian people diligently, and always with an eye on excellence.
I invite you to explore our website. As you do, I am certain that you too will discover how very special this institution is.
