Code of Ethical Conduct (Tarbawyyat)

Skip Navigation LinksEffat University > Effat University > About Effat > Why Effat? > Code of Ethical Conduct (Tarbawyyat)

Effat University’s Code of Ethical Conduct draws on the teachings of Islam. The Code is also influenced by the philosophy of the founder of Effat University, Queen Effat Al Thunayyan (God rest her soul), who unceasingly sought to strike a balance between traditionalism and modernity, and the IQRA Core Values derived from the imperative ‘read’, the first word of the Quran revealed over 1400 years ago.

Since its establishment in 1999, Effat University’s values have fostered stewardship, respect, care and attention for all its constituents. Our commitment to integrity, honesty and fairness in our operations - of which teaching, research and service to the community are considered an asset - has set us apart nationally and internationally as an institution seeking excellence in all its endeavours.

Drafting this holistic Code of Ethical Conduct is a crucial step towards the development of Effat University​. Our mission is to advocate ethical conduct in the management of our academic, research and community service activities, as well as interactions with our stakeholders. Effat designated eight fundamental pillars that constitute its code of ethical conduct and named them ‘Tarbawyyat Effat’. These pillars are regulatory measures and crucial to the University’s progress as it competes for academic excellence in today’s highly competitive higher-education environment.​
