A collaboration protocol was signed between the Eastern Mediterranean University (EMU) and ?skele Municipality on the 23rd of November 2016. The protocol that was signed at the EMU Rector’s Office aims to form an EMU campus in the ?skele region where academic, cultural and social exchange can take place.

Prof. Dr. Osam noted that certain programs are set to take place in ?skele after a feasibility study by the EMU Faculty of Tourism. Prof. Dr. Osam concluded his speech by relaying his hope that the protocol will be for the best for all parties involved.
