The main vision is to prepare quality human resources to fill and answer the challenges of the pace of development of science and technology and national development that is ready to face all the changes and developments of the times. To sustain this role, UII is more oriented towards customer satisfaction or user satisfaction.
In the context of UII as rahmatan lil ‘alamin, the value of customer satisfaction at least guarantees the satisfaction of individual interests, collective interests, and also socio-religious interests. To achieve this vision, UII internally emphasizes how UII can form D3, S1, S2, and S3 graduates, who have superior values and competencies in broad theoretical understanding, practical skills, and excellence of Islamic values.
Regarding Islamic values, the Faculty of Islamic Studies (FIS) is a special need for UII. FIS is a religious faculty owned by UII, which since its inception has grown and has produced many high-quality undergraduate graduates. More than that, the reality shows that the FIS also needs improvement and development both institutionally and structurally to better anticipate and respond to future challenges. As the Faculty of Religious Sciences at UII, which is rahmatan lil ‘alamin, FIS has the vision to become a reference center for Islamic law, Islamic education, and Islamic economics. All efforts are made to prepare professional experts in Islamic law, Islamic education, and Islamic economics who are committed to competency excellence.
By examining the latest developments above, also taking into account the developing discourse about the intentions and ideals of the establishment of UII, FIS UII opened the Doctoral Program in Islamic Law.
