The committee of each faculty and institution has continuously organized different activities to promote ethics according to the context of each organization. From following up the work of each faculty and institution in this respect, it was found that each has its own mechanism and guidelines for the work, which may differ from one place to another. In order to reach optimum success, the work of each institution should be shared to others so that the whole university’s implementation will be more concrete and even more efficient. That is why this event has been held today.”
