Starting from Alparslan to Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, the character of the nation, the spirit of leadership, the sanctity of the homeland had shown the whole world how to bring both justice and law to these lands and are still doing so. Therefore, there is morality, decency, and life in the character and culture of this nation. Therefore, there is love and respect for human beings.”
“Veteran Mustafa Kemal Atatürk crowned his fight that started in Anatolia with his friends with determination and belief in the days when Anatolia was almost brought to pieces and saved the Turkish nation from captivity by saving Çanakkale. We know very well that the character of our nation is still the same today and will be the same tomorrow. What makes a nation strong is through its strong leaders. Mustafa Kemal Atatürk is one of our rare personalities and leaders who saved this nation from the enemies with determination. In this context, we would like to repeat that as Yozgat Bozok University, the cradle of science, we will uphold our nation's values. "
