Rector’s Republic Day Message
Republic, knitted with freedom and independence spirit and located in a heroic struggle and steady announcement of salvation and establisment, is a seal pinched to independence and future as the latest sample of the struggle exhibited by our nation in hunger conditions with the endless determination.
Republic which appeared as the literal symbol of our independence launched in 1915 and ended in 1923 with the independence fire has always been a light on the way to future with the organizational form of social life and in the limits of wisdom and science and in the equality framework of citizenship consciousness.
Our noble nation who commit wisdom and science as a compass on the lightening way to republic will definitely continue to walk aiming at rising to the level of contemporary civilisations without losing any difficulties and showing any tiredness but only with high penetration.
On the day we have reached the 95th anniversary of Turkish Republic with happiness and pride I cordially remember the founder of our republic, Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk and his fellow soldiers with respect and congratulate the Republic Day of Turkish Nation.
