On behalf of Effat University faculty, administration, and staff, I
welcome you to our campus, your home for the next few years. I am very happy to
become acquainted with you and to help you succeed in your educational journey.
In the coming weeks and months, I plan to meet as many of you as possible to
learn about your dreams and aspirations ,
as well as your concerns and needs, so that together we can support our core mission of fostering
education, research and creativity for the benefit of humanity. Effat’s impact
is truly inspiring, and I cannot wait to support you in all that you will do
As I plan to learn from all of you, I hope you will also take time to
continue to learn from each other. As we all know, education within a
university is not just about what happens in the classroom. Our entire
community benefits from our diverse life experiences, which enrich both our
life on campus and our ability to contribute to the world beyond Effat. This is
the ideal place to share and discuss ideas and perspectives in mutual
understanding and respect.
In the fast changing global economic environment, Effat University strives
to bring global perspectives to all its programs and activities. The University
has global alliances with highly reputed academic organizations. We believe in
preparing global leaders who believe in contributing to the national and global
economy and civil society. Our faculty are not only highly qualified, they have a global perspective which is
infused in the all the curricula, not just at the undergraduate level, but also
the programs supporting the community, the masters programs and even the soon
to be introduced PhD in Business.
While we face challenges, there is also much to celebrate. In the past
few weeks, we have welcomed new graduate
and undergraduate students, new faculty and staff members, who all bring fresh
energy and perspectives to the campus. We are continuing to develop and improve
the campus buildings. Soon we will open the new the new admission and
registration building. We will celebrate its opening soon.
So let us join hands, and work, study and play together to make
Effat University ever better!
I am filled with optimism about the strength of our community, the
path of our university and the opportunity we have to magnify our impact on the
world. You will hear more from me before long, and I hope to see you around
campus—in your offices and laboratories, at performances, presentations and
other gatherings … and while cheering on our Effat ambassadors!
Dr. Haifa Jamal AlLail
President of Effat University
