"Happy 40th Anniversary, Pardee RAND Graduate School! I am delighted to support an institution that contributed significantly to my intellectual and career development. The broad vision and skills that I gained at the school have helped me bring about extensive change in the public sector, private sector, and NGOs to improve quality of life. The anniversary theme, 'Be the Answer,' resonates deeply with me as the chairman of ARGE Consulting, which encourages every employee to volunteer one day a week with nongovernmental organizations. This policy has helped us contribute to the development of civil society for Turkiye's transition to participatory democracy."
