Abstract: In Turkey, digitalization of curricula, teachers, course materials, and educational technologies is relatively slower when compared with the ones in economic sectors and state services in general. In this study, we proposed a model for a new generation university in a digitalized society. The Council of Higher Education classifies universities in three categories (mission) to respond to technological and economic developments in the societal life: research, regional-development oriented and thematic universities. At national level, a digital transformation office acts as a coordination and orchestration body among governmental institutions in order to carry and transform public services into digital environment. The private sector naturally has to be digitalized by national and international severe competition.
