At An-Najah National University (ANU) we aim to equip our students with all these components together in what we refer to as COMPETENCIES.
It is the vision of this office is to prepare students not only qualified in their field, but to graduate them with the competencies that will make them a more capable, more competent, and more employable graduate. As the leading institution of higher education in Palestine, and one that takes as its ultimate mission the amelioration of the Palestinian community, ANU realizes its responsibility to contribute to the process of building a modern, independent state in Palestine.
