Founded in 2018, the Al Istihqaq University has evolved into Libya’s leading institution of learning, discovery and knowledge creation. We are proud to be one of the Libya’s top intensive universities, driven to invent and innovate. Our students have the opportunity to learn from and work with preeminent thought leaders through our multidisciplinary network of teaching and research faculty and partners.
The Diversity of our Community is Our Strength
“We believe that excellence flourishes in an environment that embraces the broadest range of people, that helps them to achieve their full potential, that facilitates the free expression of their diverse perspectives through respectful discourse, and in which high standards are maintained for students and staff alike..
An equitable and inclusive working and learning environment creates the conditions for our diverse staff and student body to maximize their creativity and their contributions, thereby supporting excellence in all dimensions of the institution.
Excellence at the Al Istihqaq University is predicated on core freedoms that are at the heart of every university’s mission – freedom of speech and expression, academic freedom and freedom of research.”
The University strategic priorities provide a framework around three areas of focus for the community. The three priorities are our commitment to achieving the goals set out in the University's plan: to enhance and strengthen our standing as a ranked powerhouse and leader in research-intensive education in Libya.
