German Jordanian University  
The German-Jordanian University (GJU) was founded in 2005 by a Royal Decree, in accordance with a Memorandum of Understanding reached between the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research of the Federal Republic of Germany. The university follows the model of the German fachhochschulen, Universities of Applied Sciences. These Universities are mainly characterized by their philosophy of strict relation to practice and their application oriented approach to knowledge transfer. The University has grown both in size and stature over the past two years. It has positioned itself a leading institution of higher learning, known for its dedication to service, its innovative approach to academic management and human resource development, and its relentless pursuit of excellence in all fields of applied research and instruction. As chartered, the University is a governmental institution with a considerable degree of autonomy.

The vision for the new institution is to play a pivotal role in the socio-economic and professional development in Jordan and its mission is to provide life-long learning and continuing education. This initiative has gained both the financial and the ideological support of the governments and the private sectors in Germany and Jordan.

The aims of the academy, and in accordance with the wishes of His Majesty the King, are to supply the Jordanian society with academically educated musicians as well as to spread and promote awareness of the importance of music for our nation's culture. These aims are designed to meet the country's increasing demand for both specially educated music teachers and professional performers.

Jordan University  
School education expanded remarkably following Jordan's independence in 1946. In the late forties and fifties there was a great demand for programs at the bachelor's level to enable Jordanian students to pursue their higher education at home. Several Jordanian institutions and personalities submitted proposals to this effect. Towards the end of 1961, a British Committee undertook a visit to the headquarters of the Jordanian Armed Forces to discuss its needs of arms. The response they received, then, was that “Jordan is not in need of traditional arms and equipment, it is in need of equipping its youth with modern education.” Subsequently, a British delegation was invited to the Kingdom from October 23 - November 5, 1961 to assess the potential of setting up a university in Jordan. The delegation comprised the following members: Sir Douglas Veale, Late Registrar, University of Oxford (Leader), Dr. W. W. Grave, Master of FitzWilliam House, University of Cambridge, and Professor R. L. Wain, Wye College, University of London. At the end of their exploratory visit, the delegation came up with a 22-page report about the overall status of education in Jordan and the urgent need to establish the first university in Jordan. In the report, they said: “After weighing the various factors, some in favor and some against, we have reached the conclusion that the time has come for a university to be set up. We feel strongly, however, that in the initial stages, the economic and social needs of the country should be the principal factor in determining the subjects to be available for study. This short-term development which we recommend must be so planned as to lead on without disturbance to further developments as and when opportunity offers.

Philadelphia University  
As a distinguished academic institution, Philadelphia University commits itself to becoming a full partner in the development of both Jordanian society and other societies at the regional and global levels. The role of science, technology, information and means of communication is becoming absolutely vital to the well-being of humanity. In the coming few years, this role is bound to become a decisive engine of growth. Relevant high – quality education, supported by problem – oriented, inter-disciplinary and inter-institutional research, is the only means of leading any society to become an active partner in the development of human civilization. The speed of globalization and the collapse of cultural and economic barriers require modern education, e-learning and interactive systems rooted in democratic interaction, human rights, complete freedom of thought and greater creativity by the younger sectors of society. As the rapid development of knowledge, science and technology could widen the cultural divide between generations and society, modern approaches to education and lifelong interactive learning will become indispensable in alleviating effects of this trend.
