Message Regarding 2020 Policy Development Goals
As a world university at the heart of Istanbul, we promise to provide a productive learning and working environment for all BAU Family members and thus become a model to society. We prioritize creating a diverse and inclusive environment, free from all discriminatory and violent behavior such as race, gender, disability, socioeconomic status, sexual preference, religion, language, and other discriminations to reach and preserve this province in our culture. We embrace the quality of being upright and righteous and disdain the discrimination of race, gender, disability, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, religion, language, sexual harassment, workplace violence, abuse of authority, and all other forms of violence.
In addition, as an education, research, and service institution we base all of our processes and applications upon the principles of academic freedom and academic integrity. We believe that innovation, progress, raising future generations, and sustainability of sharing the produced information reside in United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
In line with our mission, we promise to develop policy documents that reflect these principles in a participatory manner in 2020, to review all our processes starting from the processes that constitute the life cycles steps of our students and staff at our university, and to organize the mechanisms for preventing violations and how to deal with it in possible situations.
