The Faculty of Arts and Education hosted a visit by a group of academic and administrative staff from An-Najah National University in Nablus, Palestine from 24.-28. April. The aim was to strenghten the existing partnership and explore new cooperation possibilities within arts, humanities and educational sciences.
When Zeina Ousamah Jaber (20) of Palestine arrived to study at the University of Stavanger half a year ago, she came to a grey and cold place. She felt all alone and sad. «Now I just want to stay here forever because I am enjoying it so much», she says.
The foundation for this cooperation project is the town twinning activities between Stavanger and Nablus running since 1996. Building on many years of exchanging artists, chefs, school teachers, political representatives and leadership, our exchange agreement for academic purposes has etablished a new partnership in higher education.
The Nablus Society of Stavanger is the primary motor of the municipal cooperation, and our main network partner.
