Ukraine's Oldest University Celebrates its 400 Year Anniversary
Looking forward to another 400 years of development and achievement
During the four hundred years of its existence, the Kyiv-Mohyla Academy has been through times of prosperity and neglect, unprecedented intellectual rise and bitter defeats.
The history of our university, its mission and vision are deeply rooted in the history of Ukraine, depends on it and influences it at the same time. During its long history, the Academy and its graduates played a crucial role in the most significant historical events in Ukraine.
In 1991, re-opened Kyiv-Mohyla Academy became a symbol of the revival of Ukraine. Since then our university actively contributed to the eradication of the old Soviet habits in the country. Nowadays, in times of war and great social transformations, after the Revolution of Dignity, Ukrainian society has a huge demand for reforms, change of the previous development paradigm, formation of a new national identity. Kyiv-Mohyla is in the forefront meeting all of these demands.
Dozens of our colleagues now work in government, public and business organizations/ They create new rules, a new model of "state-society" relations. NaUKMA is an initiator and author of the vast majority of educational reforms that took place in independent Ukraine. It is important for the country, it is important for all of us.
After all, we are convinced that education and science are a basis and guarantee of stable development and prosperity of the county in the modern civilized conditions. Marking the 400th anniversary of our Alma Mater, we look ahead with confidence for the next 400 years of future development and achievements.
Ukraine is now living through a period of global change and global confrontation, so the key success factors for our country are innovative development and human capital. Now, more than ever, prosperity of the country depends on a person - competent, critical thinking, proactive and responsible. This is where Kyiv-Mohyla community implements its primary mission: “to form highly educated, patriotic, honest, caring and creative personalities, able to think independently and act responsibly in accordance with the universal principles of kindness and justice for development of an open and democratic society."
As an organization, the university will develop primarily as an innovative research institution of the XXI century, which facilitates implementation of the idea of enlightened Ukrainian nation, as an equal member of the international academic community. In this context we see our duty as the creation of new knowledge, ideas and meanings, innovative research, competitive in a global context.
Glory to Ukraine!
Glory to Kyiv-Mohyla Academy!
