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:
Let me introduce myself. I am Ksenia Panteleyeva, a student of the 4th year, Faculty of Linguistics, and I’ve picked up some hands-on experience to share with fellow treaders on the path of translation. This summer I tried a real translation bureau for a job of a translator’s assistant. It was really priceless, I realized that my translation classes really matter, and, what I am really proud of, sometimes I had an opportunity to check the work of the professionals and even correct their work sometimes - and, at the same time, to find something new I could learn.
The Federation Council of the Federal Assembly held a meeting with the IGUMO team, the vice-chairman of the Upper House of the Russian Parliament Galina Karelova, and two senators, Valentina Petrenko and Elena Afanasyeva. The institute was represented by the rector, deans of several faculties, the vice-rector Roman Piskunov and the head of the IGUMO media centre Pavel Ivanov. The rector presented a concept of the web portal designed by the professors and students of the institute.
September 1 in IGUMO was bright and great. The Rector and the deans greeted newcomers and told them about academic life. The newcomers took a chance to take a tour round the Institute and to make some photos (see the album).
