Robert College At 150 Years
Anatomy of a Tradition: 150 Years of Robert College (1863-2013) is an exhibition in honor of the 150th anniversary of the founding of the school.
Robert College, which has played a key role in training prominent figures in fields from politics and business to academia and the arts, is presenting its 150-year history in a public exhibition. Robert College occupies an important place not only in the history of Turkish education but in the history of the country itself. The exhibition, a collaboration between the college and the Istanbul Research Institute, throws light on the cultural, social, intellectual and educational life of Istanbul as well as on the college’s 150-year history. Entrance is free at the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation Istanbul Research Institute, through August 31.
