ACES is pleased to announce that ACES Co-Founder and Director, Dr. Omar Abdulhadi, was awarded the honorary doctorate degree from Birzeit University for his contributions to Palestine and his efforts toward the advancement of Palestinian institutions. The awarding took place during the university 44th graduation ceremony on 21 June 2019.
Dr. Abdulhadi has also funded the construction of the Omar Abdulhadi Building for the faculty of Business and Economics. The inauguration ceremony of the new building took place before the graduation ceremony and was attended by the chairperson of the university’s Board of Trustees (BoT), the university’s president, the BoT members, the university’s council, and staff and faculty members.
Dr. Abdulhadi expressed his pride in his honorary doctorate that he received from Birzeit University. “The doctorate that I have been awarded today made me happier than when I received my doctorate in civil engineering from the University of California, Berkeley in the USA forty years ago.”
