About Hebron and Hebron University:
Hebron (known locally as 'al-khalil') is located in the West Bank of Palestine, 30km south of Jerusalem, with a population of approximately 250,000. Hebron is home to the tomb of Abraham - the father of Judaism, Christianity and Islam - making it an important, historical pilgrimage site for all Abrahamic faiths. The city's importance throughout the last three millennia is well recorded in many religious and historical texts, and can be seen in many of the city's archeological sites. Its continued significance is reflected in current Israeli attempts to force the Palestinian population out of Hebron's historical center. In 2017 UNESCO added the old city and mosque to the  world heritage sites list.

Hebron University was founded by Sheikh Mohammad Ali Al-Ja'abari in 1971.  First established was the College of Islamic Law with an intake of 43 students. As of 2018, the University boasts 12 Colleges and approximately 8,000 students - 75% of whom are female. Hebron University aims to promote excellence in its faculty, staff and students while also contributing to the development of the cultural, social and economic status of Palestinian society.
