Dr. Timur enjoys contributing to her community, volunteer service for educational systems, speaking at civic organizations and participating in chamber of commerce and other community organizations’ research projects. She defines education not solely about degree programs or specific disciplines to accomplish, but about helping her students find their potential by learning how to think critically, communicate effectively, take initiative, demonstrate leadership, and research information to avoid biased thinking. It is a long-standing goal of hers to help create a “thinking community” with intellectual and professional citizens.
She has a goal of making a beneficial difference in the lives of her students, personally and professionally, via quality education in an effective learning environment that makes use of advanced educational technology. As a faculty member, she is both honored and proud to see her students succeed in career advancement and recognition in the business world.
Personally, she is married to Ali Mete Timur and has two wonderful children who provide her the energy to realize her fullest potential every day.
