Production of an academic content and research is the base of development of any academic field. In fact, the development of academic affairs, directing society towards progress, and quantitative and qualitative improvement of academic services in the various fields of education and contemporary technology to achieve high goals, welfare and comfort and well-being of society depends on the amount of research and efforts of researchers and scholars.

It is also clear that a university is the center of research, enlightenment of public opinions and putting the young generation and society on the path of progress.

Thus, Salam University has established a research center to serve as much as possible in the field of contemporary education and knowledge at the national and local levels in order to coordinate the research process of professors and students in the field of development of current education and knowledge at the mentioned levels.

This center was established and started operating in the spring of 2018 under the supervision of the Academic Vice-Chancellor of Salam University within the framework of the administrative organization of Salam University based on the decision of the Academic Board and the model professors of the University.

Currently, the Research Center of Salam University has a special cohesion committee consisting of the in charge and nine members.
