The Statement Of Güler Sabancı, Sabancı University Founding Chairman of The Board Of Trustees, For The Loss of Prof. Tosun Terzioğlu


Mr. Terzioğlu served for 12 years as the founding rector of our university, made a difference in Turkey's higher education, and made unforgettable contributions to our leading university's journey to become a "global university."

He prioritized science, learning and teaching above everything else throughout his life. Besides his academic and scientific accomplishments, he was a role-model volunteer and a complete pioneer of education. We are deeply sorry for his passing away—for losing an extremely valuable person like him.

As a person with whom I had the opportunity to work closely, who never spared his love and efforts from our university; may God's mercy and grace be upon him. Condolences to the community of Sabancı University, and to Mr. Terzioğlu's family and loved ones.
