The changes occurring in the West Bank under the authority of Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad displays the capabilities of positive change.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
