Vice Deanship for Development

Vice Dean's Note

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious the Most Merciful, I start with a verse from the Quran
{فأما الزَّبد فيذهب جُفاء وأما ما ينفع الناس فيمكث في الأرض} الرعد، ١٧
In this verse Allah Almighty presents an example of what is true and what is false, where he almighty says: “as for the foam, it vanishes, [being] cast off; but as for that which benefits the people, it remains on the earth”.
The Vice Deanship for Development aspire to make all its activities beneficial to KAUFD and the community. Under this Vice Deanship, we thrive to keep abreast of the accelerating changes that are taking place around the world today. Our goals and strategies have developed to meet the ambitions and expectations of our school, the university and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The Kingdom has set for us ambitious goals; 2030 vision, and we need to rise up to that level.
The Vice Deanship with its supportive units and esteemed members empowered the school with information, improvement plans, and processes.
The school seeks to spread the culture of hard work in line with the words of the prophet peace be upon him:
)إِنْ قَامَتِ السَّاعَةُ وَفِي يَدِ أَحَدِكُمْ فَسِيلَةٌ، فَإِنِ اسْتَطَاعَ أَنْ لاَ تَقُومَ حَتَّى يَغْرِسَهَا فَلْيَغْرِسْهَا‏(
"If the Final Hour comes while you have a palm-cutting in your hands and it is possible to plant it before the Hour comes, you should plant it."
Our aspirations drive our team-work driven quality assurance culture.
