Birzeit University Receives a Youth Delegation of the General Union of Palestinian Communities in Europe
The Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Adnan Yahya received on July 8, 2013 a youth delegation from the General Union of Palestinian Communities in Europe. Yahya briefed the guest delegation on the university’s situation and future academic plans, stressing the need to strengthen the relationship between Birzeit University and European universities.
Yahya expressed his hope that "This visit will open channels of communication between Palestinian youth in the Diaspora and at home." He added: "You are lucky because you were able to visit Palestine, unlike many others in the Diaspora, who can’t visit their home country."
At a later stage, the delegation met with the Birzeit University Student Council and discussed mechanisms for cooperation and networking with Palestinian unions and federations in the Diaspora.
