Since effective leadership is the path towards an economic and social prosperity in a changing and developing world, Imam Abdul Rahman bin Faisal University  focused on this issue and urged leaderships to develop their strategic goals through the sixth strategic objective: (Building a modern institutional administrative system), and the emerging program, entitled The Administrative System Development Program (a project to enhance the administrative or executive role of university leaders) (an initiative to enhance  the administrative and executive capabilities of university leaders)

The development of individuals is one of the civil organizations functions within their civilized role, which contributes to the service of their employees and society. Therefore, measuring the quality of performance to achieve the desired goals within the organization depends on how to train its leaders to perform the tasks assigned to them, to provide genuine solutions to problems they face within their organizations and in the world in general. There is no doubt that universities have an important role in developing this aspect by encouraging the human capabilities to adopt the notion of professional development and enhancing it in various ways. The establishment of the (Academic Leadership Center) within the system of the Vice Presidency of Academic Affairs is a link in the chain of continuous development undertaken by Imam Abdul Rahman bin Faisal University to establish supportive and important foundation within the university’s structure.

Therefore, we present to you an integrated document about the (Academic Leadership Center); serving all university leaders from faculty members in their activities and programs in a comprehensive manner, and communicating directly and indirectly in integral manner with university directorates and relevant external institutions.

We will motivate the university community of current and promising leaders to develop and update methods and strategies of work from the traditional intellectual pattern to a creative pattern that enhances the latent capabilities in various disciplines and scientific fields, through the preparation and implementation of a high-quality set of scientific and practical programs that focuses on developing the most important administrative, educational and leadership competencies.

The center seeks to be influential in developing leaders in various service sectors in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in addition to be an investment expert and a soft force on the university decision-makers in various sectors of society.
