Dear students ,
It is with great pleasure that I am informing you to join the Palestine Ahliya University College student’s club (PISC). It is an invitation that draws together students who are willing to help others, who are devoted to learn new things and who wish to contribute to something greater than themselves. It is a way we integrate our students into the glob.
PISC incorporates volunteering, friendship, international spirit, creativity, openness and goodwill. It’s about having fun, meeting new people, but also about being responsible, committed and courageous. All of this inspires and produces environment where together we can change something and make an impact at our university, in our country and, in the long run, in the world.
I expect that students who are motivated to join are active, creative and open-minded people. The values we appreciate most are friendship, responsibility and goodwill.
Dr. Sami Basha
President Assistant for International Affairs
Palestine Ahliya University College
Our vision: is to create an international community at PAUC. We want to integrate students into the glob and into events at our university. We create surroundings where different cultures meet and foreign and Palestinian students get to know each other.
Our mission: We develop great personalities strong in team-building, create friendships, volunteer and achieve 100% reliability. We support the active involvement of our students, their self-realization and personal development in a creative environment where there is a friendly and open atmosphere. In this way we contribute to understanding, friendship and cooperation among our students in Palestine and throughout the world.
Our Core Values
PISC certainly stands on some values we all share. These values are crucially important to our university and they reflect the way we dream, work, cooperate and communicate. They’re independent of time and situations and define our culture. Here’s the list of values we live by;
Give & ask for feedback: You have an idea? Share it. Our collaborative thinking can lead to innovation. And maybe it’s your idea which will drive the change.
Get involved & involve others: Don’t be afraid to take an action. You like some activity in PISC? Get involved. Have new ideas? You don’t have to work on them alone. There always are people in PISC who will help you.
Pursure the growth of yourself & help others grow with you: We wholeheartedly believe that education is essential for our future. We see in all students more potential than they think they have and do our best to help them realize it.
Be active, creative and open-minded: Our success is dependent upon active students who explore new possibilities, approach problems with an open mind and innovate with their creative ideas.
Share your ideas: You have an idea? Share it. Our collaborative thinking can lead to innovation. And maybe it’s your idea which will drive the change.
Be Humble: We should always be respectful of everyone no matter our differences. It’s important to treat others as we want them to treat us. Arrogance is something we thoroughly despise in PSIC.
Never worry about making mistakes, but be sure to learn from them: In PISC we are convinced that if we truly want to learn new skills and make a progress, sometimes it is inevitable to make mistakes. We therefore don’t mind people making mistakes as long as they learn from them.
Stay optimistic: It’s important to believe that we can change and improve things. Without hope, there would be no action.
Expand your horizons: In a globalized world it’s important to understand people’s background and culture. So go beyond borders and contribute to understanding & cooperation among the nations in Europe and throughout the world.
Believe in ISC spirit. Pass it on: Let’s spread the spirit of positive attitude, goodwill, friendship & volunteering all over the world.
