Known as an, “oasis of peace,” in a land characterized by conflict, Bethlehem University was created following the historic 1964 visit of Saint Pope Paul VI to the Holy Land. The University is a joint venture between the Holy See (Vatican) and the De la Salle Christian Brothers. It is the only Catholic/Christian university in the Holy Land. The mission of the University is to provide quality higher education to the people of Palestine and to serve them in its role as a center for the advancement, sharing, and use of knowledge. Bethlehem University aspires to foster shared values, moral principles, and dedication to serving the common good.

Bethlehem University Foundation is the U.S. registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization entrusted with a focus to assist Bethlehem University (in the Holy Land) in achieving its mission and promoting Bethlehem University in the United States.
