In this research, using the documentary method, an acceptable and independent definition of the two words "civilization" and "modern Islamic civilization" has been presented. Then, the content analysis method is used to analyze and examine parts of Imam Khamenei's speeches about the duties, roles and functions of the Islamic University with a civilization approach. This approach was based on an acceptable and autonomous definition resulting from the first step of the research.
The distinguishing functions achieved for the university in the process of forming a new Islamic civilization based on Imam Khamenei's system of thought are; "Creating and nurturing the intellect of the country", "Training competent and efficient manpower", "Creating and strengthening the ground for student awakening", "Laying the ground for scientific growth and breaking the dogmas of the Western sciences", "Wise protection of the Islamic Revolution and its principles".
