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
