Distinguished Teachers Named
"Bilkent has always had an excellent atmosphere conducive to preparing students for lifelong learning. I have always felt privileged to have the opportunity to teach at Bilkent. It is especially gratifying to receive this award from students and alumni."
Ömer Benli (Assoc. Prof. IE)

"I am honored to be selected as a Distinguished Teacher. As students mature to a level appropriate to the university environment, it is our responsibility as facilitators rather than dominators to provide the platform for the transformation of their outlook. Having come from a people-oriented and labor-intensive industry where customer needs and satisfaction are a priority, academically I am in a position to empathize with the students' perspective in anticipating and meeting their needs. My sincere thanks to all my current and former students!"
Perin Öztin (Chair THM)

"I feel very grateful to our university, to our department administrators and faculty, and especially to our students for this unexpected honor. I also think that Guram Apichazava, my dedicated interpreter, has a share in this award. It has been three years since we left Georgia to start working at Bilkent. Being recognized for my teaching in such a short time demonstrates that it is very important for our future to live in peace by disregarding differences in culture, language, religion, and ethnic background."
Zurab Sıkharulıdze (THEA)
