Message for the New Academic Year from the Rector, Prof. M. İhsan KARAMAN, MD


Dear Members of our University Family,

Today marks the start of 2016-2017 academic year, a new period that I hope will bring good days and success for the entire Medeniyet family.

All new periods bring new excitements. We greet our new students with such excitement and wish them success in the path of knowledge and learning we will be walking together from this day on.

Only five years since its founding, our university has made tremendous progress both in quantity and quality. We are starting the new academic year almost doubled in size with two new campus areas and nine new undergraduate programs. It is our greatest priority to work hard without slowing down and to strive with the awareness of our important role for the future of our country and the world at large. I strongly believe that we are going to make significant and original contributions to science, technology, and arts by blending local and universal values and reinforcing the experience of coexistence for my academic and administrative colleagues, with whom I am proud to work with, surely possess the qualifications and capacity to make such contributions. With such strong staff, I am sure that İstanbul Medeniyet University will distinguish itself as a leading higher education institution with its successes, as well as with its synergy, solidarity, and harmony as a family. 

With these ideas in mind, I congratulate our new students once again and wish all my academic and administrative colleagues a successful and productive academic year.

With my heartfelt regards...

Prof. M. İhsan KARAMAN, MD
