Vice presidency for business and Knowledge creativity

General Directorate of social Responsibility


Social responsibility in present time is a fundamental element of growth of societies where citizens bear responsibility, something that is sought by Saudi Vision 2030 in its clause titled ‘ambitious nation’. This clause is distinguished by its two elements, an effective government and a responsible citizen. It aims at transforming into a high-performance government marked by effectiveness, transparency, and accountability, and enabling citizens, private sector, and non-profit institutions to take initiative in exploring opportunities to achieve the goals of the vision.
Saudi Arabia recently approved law of national commission for social responsibility for private sector, which aims to regulate social responsibility, set strategies, develop performance of the companies, and activate their role in sustainable development and community service. Hence, the university has always sought pioneering in social responsibility through the establishment of the General Directorate of Social Responsibility at King Abdulaziz University.
