Establishment of the Office:
The office was founded by virtue of the Royal Decree no. (44643), dated 15/9/1437 A.H., which laid down the rulings for establishing National Transformation offices in ministries and governmental sectors. These offices have the task of implementing national transformation initiatives. In accordance with the recommendations of the Council of Economic and Development Affairs, they are designated as “Vision Realization Offices”, since they, essentially, work to achieve the Kingdom’s Vision.
Due to the multiplicity of actors within the University engaged in strategic planning, including the Strategic Planning Unit and Vision Initiatives Management Office, it became clear that it was important to unify all these disparate entities into a single integrated system, to which a Strategy Management Office would be added. They would all function under the name of the "Initiatives Management and Vision Realization Office". This was in accordance with the decision of His Excellency, the UQU President, no (4002000112), dated 1/ 1/ 1440 A.H. Such a step came in line with the University’s keenness to improve efficiency, to reduce wastage of resources, to consolidate efforts, to accomplish excellence in performance as well as institutional competence in managing initiatives, and finally to implement the initiatives governance framework within the broader strategy and planning of the University towards achieving the Kingdom’s Vision for 2030
