Ulyanovsk State Pedagogical University

General Information 

Ulyanovsk State Pedagogical University is a major higher education and research institution in Ulyanovsk. It was established in 1932. The recruitment of teachers and students was not an easy task at that time, but this task was successfully solved. 80 applications from teachers were submitted to the institute, and 12 of them were enrolled in the staff, including 4 associate professors, 1 acting assistant professor, and the rest assistants. “October 1,” the local newspaper Proletarsky Put reported, “classes began at the Ulyanovsk State Pedagogical Institute. The Pedagogical Institute and the academic staff are fully staffed with teaching staff and students. The worker-peasant core at the institute was 70% and in the workers’ faculty 71%.

 All students and teaching staff arrived neatly at the start of classes. In 1934, significant structural changes took place in the Pedagogical Institute. Instead of departments, two faculties were created: physical and mathematical and natural. Every year the Ulyanovsk Pedagogical Institute grew and gained strength. The number of students increased to 600 people. New classrooms and laboratories were opened (botany, zoology, psychology, etc.). All classrooms simultaneously served as rooms for lectures and seminars, as well as for the independent work of students. In the approved program for the strategic development of the university, three major areas were identified: the development of educational and scientific activities, as well as improving the infrastructure of the university

For their successful implementation, several activities have been planned and are being successfully implemented: the modernization of the research process, the development of human resources and the formation of a high-quality contingent of students, the introduction of innovative developments, the improvement of infrastructure, organizational structure and, the increase in the efficiency of university management.
