King Khalid University (KKU) is committed, in all its policies, decisions and dealings with ethical framework. It is also governed by a set of values derived from the teachings of our Islamic religion which have been approached by this country's leaders. Moreover, these values are consistent with the Ministry of Higher Education’s policies and are in harmony with the pursuit of King Khalid University into a unique excellent university. So, the university’s concerns are not confined only to the educational, research and community service activities, but it ensures that it is an academic institution which offers these three functions under a framework of ethical values. There is no doubt that the multifunctionality of the university and the increasing and complexity of the undertaken tasks, as well as the increase in internal and external relationships, have imposed the need for an ethical framework that instructs and directs the behavior of its employees, especially at varying points of view about a particular behavior pattern. Here ethical framework comes to set a number of specific ethical trends, standards, responsibilities, controls and caveats, that are agreed upon and which govern the practices within the university community. However, the ethical framework is so different from the terms, rules or regulations, in that it is a declared agreement among a group of sides on framework of ethical values and specific set of behavior rules in various situations. For that, it represents a compelling ethical value for all.
King Khalid University strives for a leading role with regional roots, international dimensions, knowledge and research excellence and effective community contribution through qualitative competence.
King Khalid University commits to providing relevant academic environments for high-quality education, conducting innovative scientific research, providing constructive community services, and maximizing the employment of knowledge techniques.
