The outgoing year turned out to be very difficult and eventful. Nadezhda Dubiv noted:
'In 2020, the words coronavirus, social distance, self-isolation, pandemic, distance learning and online format have become very common in everyday life. Masks on faces and blue gloves are not surprising anymore. I thank students for their patience and diligence and teachers for their professionalism and hard work.'
The rector recalled that 2020 was devoted to the university`s road map, building links with society, business and government. In 2020 the main document of the university, the development strategy for the next five years, was approved.
2021 will be the year of implementing plans and ideas. Modernization of educational programs, digitalization, joint work with strategic partners, including work on projects of the World-Class Ural Region Research and Education Center, lie ahead.
In 2021 Kurgan State University turns 70 years old, so 2021 will be filled with the history of the university, the warmth of memories and the joy of meetings.
'Dear friends, I wish you to have a good rest during the holidays, enjoy communication with your family and friends, gain strength, energy and optimism. Let 2021 be a year of prosperity, happy events, and impressive results for all of us. Happy New Year!'
