Institutes & Centers

The institutes and centers at Birzeit University spearhead the University’s community engagement in areas of critical importance to the Palestinian society. The institutes host 30 postgraduate programs and focus on applied research, policy development and community interventions while the centers engage in a wide range of programs in capacity building, professional development and training open to organizations and individuals. Our initial literacy program of the early 80s had been replaced and expanded over the years to include public and community health, media, judicial reform, gender, water and the environment among others.
