An online system has been created at EMU so that students from the state of emergency region who will attend face-to-face education can submit their requests for support. Thanks to the online system created, various materials and donations collected from university staff, unions, non-governmental organizations and other donors are being systematically distributed to students. The committee stated that the students who will participate in the face-to-face education can submit their help requests via the online system before they come to the university, so that when they arrive, the coordination of their requests for help with the relevant units will be ensured in advance. Students' requests for psychological support are also directed to the relevant units by the Support Committee.
The committee underlined that in order for the support for students to be coordinated in a healthy way, the students must fill out the Support Request Form available on their own portal accounts.
