In What Ways Do We Support the Professional, Cultural, and Social Atmosphere?

Our Faculty actively promotes and encourages student professional development. All livestock operations and pet owners in the local context receive round-the-clock assistance from our staff. In this regard, various protocols have been signed with municipalities. Service is provided to the entire region in this context. Necessary steps are being taken in our region to improve livestock activities. The region contributes significantly to livestock activities through business visits and collaboration with breeders' associations. Furthermore, student communities are crucial for students' cultural and social development. There are two types of community structures classified into professional and social categories within the body of the Directorate of Health, Culture and Sports at our university. Professional communities are faculty-specific, whereas social communities are more general. So far, our students have participated in a wide range of community activities and organizations. In addition, our university offers the institutional basis required to foster the environment that will support the cultural growth of our students through social communities working in 93 sectors ranging from chess to cycling.
