The "Families at the University Project" will be implemented in Pendik district with the "Prevention of Interpersonal Violence: Transparent Look" project, expanding its scope after pilot application. The Social Innovation Project Cooperation Meeting of The University of Families was held under the leadership of Pendik Mayor Ahmet Cin, Pendik Governor Dr. Hülya Kaya and Uskudar University Founding Rector Prof. Dr. Nevzat Tarhan. While the importance of family was emphasized at the meeting where the project team was present, Prof. Dr. Nevzat Tarhan said, "Family means homeland, homeland means family. It is only possible to lay the foundation well in society with family. Family is the home of raising good people".

Uskudar University is expanding its 'Families at University' Project with its application partner NPIstanbul Brain Hospital. The project, which aims to build a "Conscious Individual, Healthy Family, Strong Society" model covering protective, preventive and rehabilitative activities related to the family based on scientific studies, is reaching more and more people every day.

The project, which successfully completed pilot work with the Governorships of Istanbul Pendik, Uskudar, Gaziosmanpasa and Eyupsultan, will now be implemented more comprehensively for Pendik. The project team met with Pendik District Managers with the project "Prevention of Interpersonal Violence: Transparent Look".

Prof. Dr. Nevzat Tarhan: "Family is the home of raising good people"

Noting the global problems with family, Prof. Dr. Nevzat Tarhan stated that there is a global perception that 'There is no investment in an institution with 50 percent divorce', and warned that this would lead to lost generations. Tarhan pointed as following: “When they see the lost generations, they'll say family matters. This project we are carrying out with Pendik is very important. It's a project that's going to lead to references. It's been a lot of work, the team has worked a lot. By the project name 'Transparent', we mean; open, transparent, everyone's open to each other in the family. If there are honest relationships, if there are accountable relationships, there are complementary relationships. Success in the family is the first condition of success in life. We had protocol with Kazakhstan recently. Over there a teacher told there is a Kazakh proverb. 'Love of homeland begins with family'. It really is. Love of homeland is taught in the family. Think about the Henna Sheeps in Canakkale... It's either liberty or death! There's no other way! It's very closely related to solid faith. Children need to be taught, too. This one's home, too, is the family.”
