“Every human being's worth is in their yohsin"
Habib University will provide an indigenous liberal arts education that has, at its heart, the philosophy of yohsin: a striving for perfection, an appreciation of beauty, passion balanced by awareness of consequences, respect for others and a desire to serve communities in which we are living.
A multidimensional concept, yohsin encompasses a world-view where the worth of a person is measured not just in terms of their technical knowledge or skills but by their interaction with nature and society at large. This involves living, thinking and acting in a responsible way.
