|Title||The universities of Palestine and regional engagement|
GROWTH AND HISTORICAL CONTEXT For Palestinians during the British mandate, pursuing a university education meant travelling to Beirut or Cairo. After 1948, the focus shifted to Cairo and various other universities in the Arab world. Egypt was far more in tune with Arab political aspirations. However, two-year, teacher training, technical and liberal arts colleges were established with the involvement of the United Nations Relief and Work Agency. Amidst these developments, Palestinians students were quickly developing their own sense of where they wanted to be in higher education. A Palestinian nationalist consciousness emerged. In 1967, Israel occupied the West Bank and Gaza, controlling movement in and out of the whole region. Efforts since 1967 have been almost exclusively on Palestine creating its own system of higher education.
