Dr. Suat İ. Günsel: The unity of our universities in Caucasus Geography has gained a global character.
The basic reason of my establishing a university was to ensure the integrity of Turkish Cypriots and Turkey. When we consider the point that we have reached today, we can see the integrity of North Cyprus and Turkey. In this context, I believe that the Caucasus University Association has a crucial role in preserving, strengthening, and maintaining the existing integrity of the geography. The integrity of our universities in Caucasus Geography has gained a global character. Our aim is to evaluate the point that we have achieved in language, culture, art, history and health and to determine our future goals. Undoubtedly, all joint programs, joint projects as well as knowledge accumulation have an important place in achieving our goals. In this aspect, inter-university projects, studies, publications, academics and student exchanges have a particular importance. Caucasus University Association, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) based International Association of Universities and European University Association have a capacity to make further progress.
