Habib University provides a liberal arts education rooted in the philosophy of Yohsin.

Yohsin encompasses five major paradigms: striving for Excellence; appreciating Aesthetics (beauty); nurturing Passion; Respecting others; and Serving the communities in which we reside.

A multidimensional concept, Yohsin incorporates a worldview where the worth of a person is measured not just in terms of the depth of their technical knowledge or skills, but by their interaction with nature and society at large. This entails living responsibly and aiming to positively impact the community and the world.
