An-Najah National University began as An-Najah Nabulsi School in 1918. In 1941, it became An-Najah College and in 1965 began to offer intermediate university degrees in academic fields that aimed to enhance the quality of education in Palestine. In 1977, it transformed into An-Najah National University, starting with two colleges: the College of Arts and the College of Science, and joined the Association of Arab Universities as a full member in 1978.
An-Najah played an important role in enriching the intellectual and scientific movements in Palestine in particular and the Arab world in general and was able to defy the political challenges it encountered over the past years. Nowadays, An-Najah is Palestine’s largest university, and it aspires to document its academic and historical journey as well as its national and international achievements through the centenary activities.
