The Senate of Students of Turkey was officially founded in the summer of 2018 by Zana Gümüş, Muhammet Yasin Edemen, Kerem Can Soygül, Orhun Akdağ and Buğra Nayir. The debut of the Senate was a workshop about the educational system, secularism and religiousness on education, practical and theoretical education, and the progress of the current educational system. The workshop took place at Kağıthane Halk Eğitim Merkezi ( People’s Educational Centre of Kağıthane) on 8th and 9th of September. Following the workshop, the Senate organized a Story and Poetry Contest this Autumn. The winner of the contest received a merit scholarship from the Senate. The Senate represents and defends the rights of the students in Turkey and aims to improve the Turkish educational system. The Senate is largely spread: it has representatives in most of the cities of Turkey.
