SAUDI ARABIAN CULTURAL MISSION (SACM)

The Saudi Arabian Cultural Mission (SACM) to the United States is one of the specialized agencies created by the Saudi government in 1951 to administer programs and policies to meet the educational and cultural needs of Saudis studying in the United States.

SACM strives to provide students with the best possible educational opportunities at the best educational institutions in the U.S.A, support Saudi students academically and financially so that they may concentrate on achieving their academic goals, collect and disseminate information that reflects Saudi culture, tradition, and heritage through their active participation in academic, cultural, and social activities.

MINISTRY OF EDUCATION

The Ministry of Education is responsible for the provision of free general education in primary, intermediate and secondary schools, and the establishment of educational services for the handicapped. It also has a responsibility for antiquities and museums. From the very formation of the Kingdom, education was seen to be of primary importance. One of the first acts of King Abdul Aziz (Ibn Saud) was to convene an educational gathering in the Holy City of Makkah with a view to initiating the promotion and establishment of educational resources throughout the land. The Ministry of Education continues this tradition of emphasis on the importance of education begun by the Kingdom's founder.
