Sample size was 100 people who were obtained by using stratified-random sampling method. Required data was gathered by a Lennick and Kiel valid questionnaire. Data analysis was done through the SPSS16 software.Research findings indicated that both faculty and staff have "very good" status in integrity, forgiveness and responsibility. Also, faculty members and staff have "very good" and "good" status in compassion respectively. The status of moral intelligence in faculty members and staff is "very good". There is a statistical meaningful relationship between age and moral intelligence status (P=0.04) but there is no relationship between other demographic variables and emotional intelligence.Moral intelligence status of faculty and staff can help the university to conduct its role in moral development of students effectively.
