    Dr. Haifa Reda Jamal Al-Lail, President of Effat University, stated that Effat University is committed to producing active society members by developing the social and personal skills of the students to enrich them with the knowledge and the ability to innovate. This is achieved by applying Effat's core values, which stem from the word IQARA (Read).

    Dr. Haifa went on to say: "The Award reaffirms that our core values are fundamental for the development of ambitious leaders who contribute to national and global progress. Our values are complemented by innovative educational curricula, in an environment that fosters a culture of knowledge, research contribution, and constructive community partnership."
