On November 19, 2012, Prof. Gökhan Çetinsaya, President of the Council of Higher Education as well as GRF member, convened with GRF members at a Roundtable and Luncheon to discuss the New Law on Higher Education which is expected to come into effect by 2013. During the meeting, GRF members shared their assessments on the New Draft Law on Higher Education, highlighting the importance of academic autonomy, promotion of diversity, independent auditing as well as mechanisms to ensure solid financial infrastructure. Following the meeting in which GRF members strongly proposed to incorporate these points as sine qua non principles of the New Law, Mr. Çetinsaya received a wide range of questions from GRF members at the Luncheon.
