To enhance the effectiveness of Bilkent University’s communication activities with internal and external stakeholders, a restructuring involving several administrative units has taken place. Various university units that carry out communication-related activities are now re-grouped into three main departments: the Communications Office, the Career and Alumni Office, and the Development Office.
A new position, Advisor to the Rector, has been established to manage the new structure, with Dr. Örsan Örge appointed to the position.
The new Communications Office will host the Publications, Digital Media, Information for Prospective Students and Public Relations functions. Dr. Örge will also serve as the acting director of this office. The Career and Alumni Office merges these two related functions and will be directed by Aydan Öktem. The Development Office is a new initiative and aims to develop and manage a donation model for the university. Tümay Öztürk Altaş will serve as the coordinator of this office.
