University of Jordan seeking financial independence

The University of Jordan (UJ) is planning to invest in the educational, tourism and medical sectors, as it seeks to generate JD50m in revenues annually, Jordan Times has reported. The plan would affect UJ's performance at all levels and limit its dependence on government support without resorting to raising student fees, said UJ President, Ekhleif Tarawneh. The investments include a four-star hotel opposite the King Hussein Cancer Centre, a private hospital, a specialised dental centre and a mall, he added.
