The Message of Rector

Dear Colleagues and Students,

Today, universities have to create powerful relationships with the economic, social and cultural forces of the regions they are located in. They need to be self-sufficient to survive. This is because first, information is more readily available today, second education now continues for a lifetime and third, we are operating in a competitive environment. Hasan Kalyoncu University stands out because it prioritizes research and development, innovativeness and investment in the human being.

Hasan Kalyoncu University has a broad vision and is aware of its responsibilities to society. Since the day the university was founded, we have aimed at creating an environment of free inquiry, and fostering the innovative and enterprising spirits of the students by broadening their horizons.

We, together with you, aim at developing projects with a scientific approach and in a peaceful environment which add value to human life. We aspire towards a university which can compete with international universities in scientific, social and cultural areas.

We not only prepare our students for real-life situations; we also help them with their personal development and career planning. Education on our dynamic campus offers the privilege of cooperation with universities abroad through international exchange programs.

Above all, our academic staff, administrative personnel and students possess a philosophy of lifelong learning.

I hope we can all work together to realize our dream of an ideal university and support this institution all through our lives.

I wish you health, happiness and success,

Prof. Dr. Edibe SÖZEN
Rector V.
