The Message of President

Dear students,
In view of the importance of education and scientific research in a globalising world, Hasan Kalyoncu University was founded as a result of the vision, efforts, resources and spiritual backing of a foundation which believes in the abilities of young people.
We trust that our university will find its place with you in the scientific and research world, as a learning-based response to the cultural and social transformation sweeping our world.
Our objective is not only to be a university that possesses international brand value, but also to make vital contributions to our people and country.  Though universities are said to have similar features, the solutions that a university offers, as well as its approach to students, can differ markedly.  Therefore, we have adopted a new university model; one that presents alternatives for an independent and free education via an educational system that caters for the needs of all our students. We believe that in this way students will successfully establish their careers.
Academic institutions are the most crucial agents of social change.  In this context we believe that, with the help of our university, you will take up your positions in the decision making processes of life and society as self-confident, transformed individuals.  With this spirit I say, ?Welcome to our university, and a fresh start for your life.?

Cemal Kalyoncu
President of the Board of Trustees
