The Global Perspectives in Higher Education: Turkey program will take place over 9 days and will focus on Turkey's ancient and very recent university traditions. A predominantly Muslim country, Turkey has a highly centralized government with strong control of education, including universities. The economy is robust, and Turkey is noted for having the 15th largest Gross Domestic Product. Turkey borders Europe, Asia and the Middle East and is increasingly seen as an important political and cultural force in both the region and the global community.
Turkey has several institutions of higher learning which date back more than 500 years, and has also seen rapid development and expansion among universities in the last few decades. Changes in national law in 1981 permitted the establishment of private non-profit universities. Today there are 102 public universities and 52 private universities, all under the jurisdiction of central policy agencies and a national testing and admissions system. Several top public and private universities are internationally ranked. The system also includes vocational colleges and teacher training institutions.
Global Perspectives in Higher Education: Turkey will include preparatory sessions here at NYU in late February and early March; travel to Turkey, leaving New York Friday March 9th and returning late Sunday March 18th; and follow up classes at NYU in late March. It will be an intensive trip, with some touring in Istanbul; visits to two public and two private universities in Istanbul; travel to Ankara for an additional university visit and meetings with government officials; travel to Cappadocia, a region with many ancient sites where we will have time for some touring and a visit to one regional institution.
