Intellectual Awareness

Effat University has established a record of striving to advance academic knowledge hand in hand with morals, ethics and traditions. The IQRA values guide the University’s activities and pursuits to create a holistic educational environment with a sense of familial belonging. Effat University has instituted several measures to achieve its vision. The establishment of a research unit and research labs, a student shura and student affairs unit, formation of clubs and organization of workshops and training sessions are all different channels through which the University promotes a healthy and well-rounded environment with well-balanced character.


The Intellectual Awareness Unit strives to partner with the community to inspire a generation of leaders and academics who uphold and advance the true Islamic principles of moderation, tolerance, and maintain harmony in a healthy intellectual environment, and encourage scholarly dialogue to avert any potentially perverse intellectual, behavioural perspectives.


The Intellectual Awareness Unit aims to work with the Effat university community, both students and staff, to reinforce the principles of moderation and tolerance modelled by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and conduct scholarly research to strengthen further national harmony while developing mechanisms to monitor, guide and prevent potentially misguided perspectives, thereby reinforcing commitment and loyalty to both religion and country.
