International Activities

 | Post date: 2019/08/31 | 
Imam Sadiq University seeks to be in the world, and to bring the world to Imam Sadiq University, because inquiry and scholarly exchange are enriched by the pursuit of cultural fluency
 

ISU has as its mission the promotion of research activities and organizing and strengthening its interaction with other academic centers. Putting emphasis on the international activities, ISU strives to share its academic experiences with other universities and implement the outcome of their experience.
ISU believes such an interaction, especially in the humanity field of study, leads to more effective cooperation. The establishment, development, and assessment of the international interactions are encouraged and carried out by the General Office for Public and International Relations- supervised by the university president- and by the Office for Academic and International Cooperation under the research Vice-President. Nowadays, ISU is considered a main source of interdisciplinary courses for incorporating the Islamic studies into the humanities.
ISU continuously hosts the visitors from other academic centers. So far, many researchers from different continents (just in 2010, 800 international visitors) have visited the campus. ISU has a great deal of research capabilities and a multitude of research contracts are signed every year between ISU and other academic centers.
 
 
 
Memorandum of Underestanding

The signing of MoU with international universities and academic institutions is very important for promoting the international academic cooperation of the university. This will stabilize the international cooperation on a permanent and regular basis and if a change of management happens, it will not lead to any major change in international practices of ISU.
It is obvious that inking a cooperative agreement with international universities lies in common academic interests and proximity of activities, facilities and capacities.
By signing a memorandum, ISU is more likely to come in close and constant contact with leading universities all over the world and the university, in turn, gains immediate academic benefits.

Faculty Research Grants for ISU
From 2013 to 2014, ISU received four applications of supporting the research opportunity and endorsed all of them. Eventually, Dr. Mohsenian-Rad and Ali-Asghar Khandan were sent to the US while Dr. Khani was sent to Hungary and Dr. Mahmoud Karimi was sent to Islamic Science and Culture Research Center in the holy city of Qom.

In the greater perspective, it can be argued that when faculty members' demands for research opportunities is on the rise, the university has done well in this case.
