‘‘HKU is a Young and Dynamic Educational Institution.’’
Rector Professor Dr. Tamer Yılmaz, who tells that they, as Hasan Kalyoncu University, not only prepare the students to the life, but in the meantime, support them in their personal development and in their career planning, targetted the students as such: ‘‘We are a youthful university having been founded in 2008, having accepted its first students in 2010 and producing its first graduates in 2015. HKU is a youthful and dynamic educational institution. In such an educational institution, there is need to an institutional system of administration beyond dispute for the construction and trouble-free implementation of participatory, democratic and modern administration. In this context, we are targeting a manner of administration which is innovative, enterpreuner, solution oriented, dynamic, transparent and participatory; which evaluates the staffs not according to their world-views but according to their productivities; which encourages and rewards; which is based on the performances; which gives priorities to respect to the universal values and human rights, to the justice and consistency,which grounds on the pleasure of their staff, protecting their personal rights, which welcomes all kinds of criticism and opposing views and accountability. The diplomas that will be given at the outset of your education life will let you have professions; however, what is more important is that those diplomas will help you to become grown-ups who are vision-holders and the individuals that govern the societies. Within this context, Hasan Kalyoncu University will be in a serious struggle for being able to pick out your enterpreuner-innovative side. Together with the same aim, Technology and Innovation courses have been added to the list of Ellective Courses. We assume that these courses would be fruitful for the students within all the departments. While we are opening the new academic year of 2015-2016 in Hasan Kalyoncu University together with the wishes of auspiciousness, I express my thanks to all the staff who provides this orientation programme to be prepared and conducted with their extraordinary and innovative understandings in this first day of the academic year, and I greet you with respect and fond.’’
All the members of HKU family conveyed the wishes of ‘‘Welcome aboard’’ and success to the students who have newly joint in Hasan Kalyoncu University adopting high quality and innovative educational system.
