Dear teachers, staff members and students of ZNU!
There is a wonderful tradition on the threshold of joyful and bright winter holidays not only to congratulate each other and wish happiness, but also to look back and estimate the outgoing year.
Remembering the main events of the outgoing year, first of all, it should be mentioned that, despite difficult times for our country, the University has chosen the path of development, compliance with European standards of education, training of highly qualified specialists which are in demand in the modern labour market.
Besides, it is necessary to mention an active development of student science at University, as well as the strengthening of scientific schools and the academic mobility of teachers and students. Another great success of the University is an international agreement on establishment of the Confucius Institute in 2017 on the basis of ZNU. In addition, ZNU continues implementation of the international Academic Integrity Promotion Project.
During the year, the team of ZNU has paid great attention to modernization of educational process, improvement of the electronic content. Also, implementation of distance learning in the educational process has been an important task for the team of scientists.
It isn’t surprising that this year an admission process has demonstrated that our university is chosen by the best applicants in the region. We are proud of the development of student self-government and students’ motivation. Their successful volunteer activity suggests that we educate not only good professionals, but also conscious individuals with an active social position.
As for sports victories, this year also has been fruitful, we have cheered for our students in Rio de Janeiro at the European Championship.
Therefore, summing up the outgoing year, I sincerely thank you for inspired work for the benefit of the university and I wish you a new year filled with success and achievements!
Rector of ZNU
