On December 10th, 2011, a search conference titled “Kadir Has University’s Strategy for a Focus on Research” was held at the Selimpaşa campus, continuing efforts that were launched in 2006.
At the conference, which was attended by seventy-four faculty members, the Final Report of “Kadir Has University’s Strategy for a Focus on Research” was evaluated and short-term objectives were drawn up. Discussions covered such issues as academic personnel, graduate education, and ways to create and maintain synergy between supervisors and students. Attendees were divided into five groups and exchanged views about concrete objectives. The evaluations of each group were then shared at a group meeting held at the end of the day.
The conference represented a significant step in establishing the institutional identity of Kadir Has University and also served as means for building stronger bonds among our academic personnel.
