İstanbul Kültür University Founding Honorary President, Master of Civil Engineering, Fahamettin Akıngüç's advice to the graduates of the Faculty of Education;

  1. I congratulate you all and I wish you happiness, peace, health and success throughout your life.
  2. I wish you good luck on your duty as teachers, wherever you may be in the country.
  3. Don’t forget that you as teachers serve your students. Education is a service industry, don’t forget that. Don’t be offended by this and fulfill your duty.
  4. Carry out your duty as a teacher in the light of modern and scientific principles of educational sciences.
  5. You must effectively teach your students about Atatürk’s reforms and principles as well as the achievements of the Republic. It’s important that you try the educational method of perception and internalization instead of only telling.
  6. You should take the Western civilization as an example throughout your life and teach your students to do the same, as well. You should orient yourself towards the West.
  7. You should teach your students to use their minds and not to memorize. You shouldn’t miss any opportunity in teaching. Opportunity education is important. Try it. Questioning and asking questions such as “Why?” and “How?” is fundamental.
  8. I send my love to all of you prospective Kültür teachers!

İstanbul Kültür University President of the Board of Overseers Dr. Bahar Akıngüç Günver;

It’s always been believed that dreaming is solely a human quality. However, institutions have dreams as well. Establishing our Faculty of Education, which is turning out its first graduates today, was always a dream of İstanbul Kültür University.

Establishing a Faculty of Education that would make the dreams of the children who say ‘I’d like to be a teacher when I grow up’ come true… Being a university for candidate teachers who are altruistic and are passionate about learning and teaching… Building a center for perfection, based on Kültür College’s fundamental principle, ‘Education of the Educator’…

This has always been a dream of İstanbul Kültür University. And now it has come true. We’ve come a long way together. This faculty has grown with you, our graduates. I hope to see the students that you will educate on these seats one day.

 

The First Step to a New Beginning

İstanbul Kültür University Rector Prof. Dr. Erhan Güzel;

“We are happy and proud to reap the fruits of years of hard work. Graduation ceremonies should not be farewells, but first steps to a new life.

I believe that you will create significant value in your professional life. You have what it takes thanks to your education. Thanks to your education, I’m sure that you will not only work for the benefit of a certain group or your own benefit, but you will strive for creating value for the entire world and building a happy and peaceful new world order. This is the mission of the Kültür family. Let’s not forget: Kültür is modern, Kültür is universal, Kültür is peaceful and Kültür is visionary.”

Dear graduates,

I’d like to reiterate my belief that you will build the future with the mission of serving science, society and the country, on the path that was drawn by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, as young people with the freedom of mind, conscience, and knowledge.
