Stating that the survey is among the largest surveys conducted in the country in terms of the number of participants, Saraç pointed out that the results of this large-scale survey are important in decision-making processes.
Stating that they conveyed the opinions of teachers and students to the relevant institutions, especially the Ministry of Health, Saraç said:
"Only 11 percent of our students and only 3 percent of the academic staff do not find it right to get opinions from the Ministry of Health. In other words, our policy of receiving the views of the Ministry of Health is strongly supported by our students and academic staff. As it is known, the Ministry of Health was asked by YÖK for its opinion on education in the spring term. We hope that the opinion of the Ministry of Health will be clear this week. This is important for removing uncertainty. Necessary decisions will be taken without delay in the direction of the opinion from the Ministry of Health. As a matter of fact, it is clear how important the gradual vaccination of our professors and administrative staff in universities is for the healthy conduct of higher education. We have conveyed our request for this to the Ministry of Health in the past months."


Prof. Dr. Saraç thanked 1 million 255 students who participated in the survey on a voluntary basis, 29 thousand lecturers and everyone who contributed to the survey, especially the rectors.
"We want our lecturers and students who share their views to know. We take opinions into account, try to reflect them to our decision-making processes within our jurisdiction, and share those outside of our jurisdiction with those concerned. 55 percent of our students who answered the questionnaire are our female students. I would like to point out that it is an important and promising detail that their participation in the survey is significantly higher than that of men. The survey results are planned to be shared with the public this week," he added.
