Hakkari University’s mission is to achieve and teach the scientific mentality with independent studies and creative activities in which both fields of education and educators bear free thought, in which studies conducted within the framework of scientificness and authenticity extend beyond finding quantitative value, in which intellectual freedom finds an expression thanks to the acceptance of differences and all-natural and cultural riches that can be converted into a new resource within existing conditions.
Our vision as an institution is to become a researcher university in which thoughts are independent, differences are accepted and tolerated, and that advances on the way to self-realization on an individual and social basis.
