Van Yüzüncü Yıl University

Van Yüzüncü Yıl University

Yüzüncü Yıl University was founded on July 20, 1982, by the Decree Law No 41. However, the attempts of foundation a university in the east region of Turkey had started long ago. Atatürk, the president of republic of that period, sent esquire Mustafa Necati, The Ministry of Education, to examine on-site to Van in 1927. Esquire Mustafa Necati found it necessary to found a university in Van. The esquire Ferit Nur, the teacher was sent to Van and was asked to transform the present middle school into a high school and to form the kernel of the university planned to found. Atatürk said, “We must go into action to constitute a modern city of culture with a primary school and finally a university in the most beautiful places on the coasts of The Lake Van for the east region.” and with this aim, he sent Saffet Arıkan, The Ministry of Education of that period, to Van for land determination.
