A Word from the Rector
Welcome to the Institute for the Humanities and Information Technologies (IGUMO&IT)!
From a college with some 20 students founded at the dawn of Perestroyka, IGUMO has grown into an full-scale innovative institution of higher education with a mission to advance knowledge, promote teaching and research, and help modern Russian society to discover new ways to overcome its most pressing problems.
IGUMO's academic environment attracts outstanding students and scholars from around the country and abroad, while its generous financial aid programmes make IGUMO accessible to students from all economic backgrounds. IGUMO is proud of its ties with the local community. Our musical and theatrical offerings, public lectures, and forums enhance the intellectual and cultural vibrancy of the region.
At IGUMO, education is limited neither by time nor space. It is an ongoing and restless research, one to which this Institute is dedicated. It is a pleasure for me to welcome you to IGUMO.
Rector of IGUMO&IT, Professor, Doctor of Juridical Science (PhD, Doctor of Law)
IGUMO On-Line News:
IGUMO is a new step in education. This is the institute of tomorrow aimed at constant development and innovations. New methods in the learning process, practically oriented approach, participation of students in large-scale projects, acquaintance with the chosen profession from the first days of training, involvement in volunteering. All these things are components of a modern innovative quality education. Studying at IGUMO lets students revel their talents and their intellectual and creative potential. This institute contributes to spiritual and moral guidance of the young generation. By graduation from IGUMO, the students have a huge store of knowledge and skills. They become highly qualified employees and are easily recruited to work thanks to their skills and portfolio.
A new study year has begun. As always, there are many interesting things: workshops, meetings with extraordinary people, students’ events, scientific conferences, new projects and a lot of practice.
As they say, time flies. Our graduates are leaving the Alma Mater. From now on, they are no longer the students of IGUMO but already professionals. Graduation is an unusual holiday as it is both merry and sad. Rector of IGUMO Marina Volynkina started the ceremony by wishing graduates best of luck and all the success in their future careers. The institute has become a home away from home for all of them. So it may be challenging for graduates to adapt to new life without it.
Enrollees have many questions but the main one is: “Who will teach us?” It is not a secret that lecturers play a key role in the process of education. The quality of students’ knowledge depends on them. Beside mentioned aspects, others are important too. For example, creativity and ingenuity. The lecturers in IGUMO have all these qualities. The company party proved it once again.
There is no secret in the fact that Global Talents, which unite most talented Russian children for more than 2 years, is the key project of our institute. Our students are developing it. For example, the students of the Faculty of Internet-Management built the site themselves. Our psychologists-to-be are responsible for creating friendly atmosphere for children to communicate. Journalists create content for the website. And our designers decorate Global Talents. Together we created a platform for children to fulfil themselves. Now they can tell the whole country about their talents. It is of great pleasure for us, for example, that those gifted children call moderator and head of Global Talents press Ekaterina Kudryavtseva their second mother.
