An-Najah National University is recognized as Palestine's leader in Higher Education. Its name reflects the true vision of its founders: "Najah" meaning success and "National" meaning that it belongs to the citizens of Palestine. An-Najah is a public university in that it is supported and supervised by a Board of Trustees and funded by citizens for a non-for-profit basis. This is opposed to other Palestinian universities that are either governmental - funded, supported, and supervised by the Ministry of Higher Education or private - supported, funded, and supervised by private institutions and organizations. In almost 90 years of teaching the University has been playing a leading part in the development of modern higher education in Palestine. The University is one of the pioneering and well-established universities in Palestine. Students from different parts of the country attend the University in pursuit of learning, knowledge and personal development. The University has a long-standing experience in meeting the educational aspirations of both Palestinian undergraduate and graduate students. The University's academic and administrative staff render a high quality education in numerous disciplines of academia guided by the University's vision: "We Challenge the Present to Shape the Future" An elementary school bearing the name of the An-Najah Nablusi School was founded in 1918. In 1941 the elementary school was converted into An-Najah National College (ANC) offering diploma degrees. In 1965 the site of An-Najah National College (ANC) was moved into a new Campus located at Omar Ibn Al-Khatab Street in Nablus . At this time ANC offered an intermediate university degree in teachers' training. In 1977 An-Najah National College (ANC) was converted into a full-fledged university ( An-Najah National University ) to meet the needs of the Palestinian people for higher education. The new Campus located in the Juneid Suburb of Nablus was inaugurated in 2006. The University is home to 19 different Faculties of outstanding reputation, in addition to an equal number of prestigious Science Centers such as the Earth Sciences and Seismic Engineering Center and the Center for Urban and Regional Planning. These centers continue to enhance and develop their work through community policy-oriented projects and research to assist in the economic, social, educational, cultural, and human development of the Palestinian community. The University has four Campuses distributed between the cities of Nablus and Tulkarem. There are three Campuses in Nablus : the Old Campus, the New Juneid Campus, and Hisham Hijawi College of Technology Campus. The fourth Campus is Khudouri which is located in the city of Tulkarem. The University's campuses are being expanded to better equip the University to meet the growing needs of higher education of the Palestinian society. The University follows a semester system, with two four-month semesters beginning in Fall and Spring, and a shorter two-month semester in Summer and currently boasts about 19,000 students in attendance along with over 3,000 academic and administrative members of staff. site:
