The World Bank and CMI organized the launch of the University Governance Screening (UGSC.V2.0) in the Palestinian Territories. The event convened members of the Higher Education Network, representatives from the Ministry of Higher education and local partner organizations. The UGSC.V2.0 is developed by the Higher Education Program to assess the extent to which, institutions of tertiary education in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, are following governance practices aligned with their institutional goals as well as international trends, while monitoring their progress over time. Currently, over 100 universities from seven countries (Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Morocco, The Palestinian Territories and Tunisia) have already participated in the benchmarking events after which a Regional Tertiary Education Network has been established as a platform promoting the exchange of information and lessons learned through reforms implementation.
The objectives of the UGSC workshop are the following:
The workshop convened, in a virtual conference, participants form both Gaza and Ramallah. World Bank experts from Washington D.C and Rabat represented an active participation as they have intervened throughout the event. This meeting was also an opportunity to receive feedback from tertiary education leaders on the revised tool and the overall program. This workshop will likely encourage the active participation of the Palestinian Territories in the second round of the UGSC benchmarking exercise as well as the upcoming International MENA Tertiary Education Conference. It will also inspire Palestinian blog contributions about the program.
