Until 1988, Jordan claimes the West Bank as its national territory. They felt obligated to support the education needs of the locals and also to pay salaries to teachers, etc. Before 1967, there were no 4 year colleges in the West Bank. Students were expected to study in Jordan (or abroad). After 1967, due to travel restrictions, it was necessary to open colleges, or expand existing lower level ones, in the West Bank itself. The new colleges received funds from Jordan and other donors abroad. I don't believe Israel had any interest in promoting the education interests of the Occupied population. My impression is that the Israeli "contribution" was limited to the imposition of travel restrictions that forced the locals to create their own universities locally.
