On Thursday, May 25, 2023, a delegation from Pitzer College and Claremont McKenna College, California, US, comprising professors and students, visited Birzeit University to learn more about higher education institutions in Palestine.

At the outset of their visit, the delegation met members of the Right to Education campaign to learn about Israeli violations against Birzeit University students and Israeli directives that isolate Palestinian universities.

During the meeting, the members demonstrated the challenges facing Palestinian universities in light of settler colonialism and for-profit education, emphasising the significance of academic exchange as a means to break the siege on Palestinian universities.

Later, Pitzer College professors held individual meetings with Birzeit University professors to learn more about the academic programs offered at Birzeit University and to explore collaborative research projects.
