In all of its activities, the Institute strives to sustain an open exchange of ideas in an environment that embodies the values of academic freedom, responsibility, integrity, and cooperation; that provides an atmosphere of mutual respect, free from discrimination and prejudice on any ground; that assists individuals, institutions, and communities in responding to a continuously changing world; that is conscious of and responsive to the needs of many communities it is committed to serve; that creates and supports partnerships within the Institute, with other educational systems and institutions, and with communities to achieve common goals that set high expectations for, and empower individuals within the community.

The Government of Pakistan has initiated a program viz. Pakistan Sweet Home under auspices of the Pakistan Bait-ul-Mal, wherein orphan children are sponsored for their living and education in 24/7 mode. Under auspices of the said program, the COMSATS University Islamabad, Abbottabad campus has assumed full responsibility of 100 orphan boys of age 4-6 years for their up-bringing and education. The said initiative is named as COMSATS Sweet Home program.

The COMSATS Sweet Home takes care of good living, upkeep and more importantly the up-bringing of the benefiting children. The look after includes shelter, food, clothing, education, sports, entertainment and more importantly the development of a cognizant socially responsible individual. The children are enrolled in the best educational institutions of the town and study alongside other children and not per se segregated because of their social deprivation. The results are seen in having confident, graceful and smiling children growing up, Insha Allah as the prolific members of the society. God willing, the COMSATS University intends to scale up the operations and would adopt more children including female children. Presently, however, the children are residing in a rented environment which is not purpose built and, at times, inhibits their healthy up-bringing. In order to correct this anomaly, the COMSATS University Islamabad, Abbottabad campus has earmarked a piece of land for the construction of a purpose built abode of the children in its serene and meticulously maintained campus there.
