Prof. Dr. Mustafa Kurt: “Never forget that you serve humanity.”
Near East University Vice-Rector Prof. Dr. Mustafa Kurt, reminding American educator John Dewey’s words, “Education is not preparation for life, education is life itself”, stated that educational science covers all applications. Addressing the graduates, Mustafa Kurt said, “Never forget that you serve humanity. Encourage criticism and grievance, because these mechanisms are the product of a civilized attitude. Be aware that authority comes from knowledge, not amplification. Remember that learning is not time-dependent and you should be proud of what you don’t know, not what you know.”
