Healing University (Şifa Üniversitesi) was established in Bornova in 2010 by the Turkish Medical Foundation (Türkiye Tabipler Vakfı - TÜTAV). The university was composed of three Schools: Medicine, Dentistry, and Health Sciences.
In the aftermath of the aborted coup of 15 June 2016, Şifa University was among the 15 universities closed down by the Decree proclaiming the State of Emergency, adopted on 23 June 2016, for alleged links with the Fethullahist Terrorist Organization (FETÖ, the name given to the Gülen movement by the Turkish government). Students were transferred to Ege University.

İDÜ, established on 20 August 2016, is composed of 10 Faculties, 3 Institutes, 1 School and 2 Vocational Schools.
İDÜ was, beyond reasonable doubt, established as the successor of İzmir University, a private university established in 2007 and closed down by the Decree proclaiming the State of Emergency, adopted on 23 June 2016 in the aftermath of the aborted coup of 15 June 2016, for alleged "links with the Fethullahist Terrorist Organization" (FETÖ, the name given to the Gülen movement by the Turkish government). The pathetic denial by the Council of Higher Education could only confirm it.

This proposal was submitted on 17 June 1992 to the Head of Parliament’s Planning and Budget Commission. The proposal for the foundation of the Institute was accepted by the Commission and the Grand Assembly of Turkey on 3 July 1992 and published on 11 July 1992 in the Turkish official gazette, No. 21,281.

The flag of İYTE (photo, photo, photo, photo) is white with a simplified version of the university's emblem.

The university is named for the scholar Kâtip Çelebi (Mustafa bin Abdullah, 1609-1657), aka Haji Khalifa.

A celebrated Turkish historian and bibliographer. From 1622 till 1633 he was employed in the Turkish army, and had an excellent opportunity of acquiring information regarding matters of history, geography, etc. He made the pilgrimage to Mecca, whence his name Hajji (q.v.). In 1635 he was at Constantinople studying and collecting material for his encyclopædia. In 1648 he was appointed second assessor in the army bureau of provisions. From this position he got his second name, Khalfah (assessor). His works are written in Turkish and Arabic. They include, besides smaller works:
(1) the celebrated Asāmī al-kutūb wo-al-funūn (Names of Books and Sciences), written in Arabic, and of which Flügel has given a Latin translation with the text, under the title Lexicon Bibliographicum et Encyclopædicum a Mustapha-ben-Abdallah (Leipzig, 1835-58). In this work is given a definition of each science; the titles, contents, language, dates of composition, and translation of more than 25,000 works are specified; also the names of the authors and dates of their death. It is the most complete catalogue in existence of works written in Arabic, Persian, and Turkish;
(2) Ta'rikh kebir (Great History), a history of the world from the creation of Adam to 1655, containing notices of 150 dynasties, principally Asiatic;
(3) a history of the Ottoman Empire from 1595 to 1655;
(4) a history of the maritime wars of the Turks, which has been translated into English (London, 1831).

A contest (rules) was organized in 2015 to design a new logo. Deadline for submission was 28 April 2015, the jury was expected to vote on 30 April and to announce the results on 4 May. Whether the today's emblem was selected in this contest is unknown to me.

The former flag of İKÇÜ (photo, photo) was white with the university's former emblem.
