As a university, we are very concerned with the "Disability Student Unit". We do not accept the fact that a student cannot have the opportunities that other students have because of any disability. For this reason, we aim to ensure that all disabled students have access to all the opportunities that everyone has.
10-15% of our country lives in need of direct support. That means caring for people between 8-10 million. The greatest difference between developed and undeveloped societies is related to how disadvantaged people are treated. The development of countries is measured with this. If we want to be in the category of developed countries, we must protect disadvantaged people; We must ensure that everyone has access to the possibilities they have and what they have achieved. Because no system that ignores disadvantaged people who need someone else's help can make the society happy. It is the duty of humanity to protect the handicapped.
In this context, we created the "Disability Student Unit". We will identify the needs of students with disabilities for academic, administrative, physical, psychological, social and welfare needs and determine what needs to be done to meet these needs.
Let's go hand in hand for an education without barriers...
