Academic Planning and Development Directorate, in line with our university's mission of achieving academic excellence, works closely with Colleges, Graduate Schools, Registrar and Student Affairs Directorate and Information Technologies Directorate. The directorate determines the principles and guidelines related to academic processes and adopts an approach that encompasses all academic units of the university.
The Directorate also runs various analyses and prepares reports in order to support the University's strategic decisions, provides external institutions with relevant data on academic issues, follows closely academic regulations and implements the necessary practices. It organizes Academic and Executive Councils meetings of the University, sets the agenda and manages the process of sharing and implementing the decisions taken with relevant units, faculty members and students. It also participates in the appointment and promotion process of faculty members and organizes programs with academic content for participants from outside the University.
