Ibn Haldun said, “Geography is destiny”. This destiny gives the youth a responsibility to initiate Open Civilization in our province, where we have seen eras open and close. We aim to prepare our new generation for this mission. For a successful and happy future in our globalizing world, we must increase the knowledge, skills and awareness of civilization and leadership that our students will need. Educational institutions, which should not be satisfied with their previous knowledge levels and must renew themselves in ever-changing conditions, can contribute to civilization with a common heritage of science and humanity.
Education is not just the transfer of knowledge but the art of nurturing humans with a holistic approach. Every person is different. The staff of Aydın Adnan Menderes University, which adopts this educational method, considers it a priority to give students the knowledge, skills and awareness of civilization and leadership which they will need for the successful and happy future of our globalizing world. Aydın Adnan Menderes University, which believes that the future of our country, our region and humanity is directly dependent on education, has adopted a liberal education approach with the principle of “people first”. The priority of our university is to ensure that students are sent into their future lives, in an ever-changing and uncertain world, as individuals who have the ability to adapt rapidly to every difficulty and innovation, who are open-minded, ethical, who love to learn and who are thoughtful.
