Sinop University firmly believes and unconditionally accepts that the main mission of a higher education institution should be provide its students, teaching staff and researchers with the opportunity to produce and apply new knowledge rather than only conveying the existing knowledge. Therefore, it stands against any types of limitations during the process of producing and sharing the new knowledge. Furthermore, it creates a relaxed environment for both researchers and students so that they can improve themselves in all aspects.

In order to adjust to the rapid change and globalization, our university encourages all its teaching and administration staff to plan for future, develop concrete strategies and make necessary adjustments to implement these new strategies. Therefore, it embraces administration strategies which are based on knowledge, democratic, affiliative, vigorous, flexible and transparent. Above all, our university shows respect and tolerance to the humanity.
