I congratulate you on the wonderful holiday - the Day of Knowledge! It is a special day for all of us, opening a new stage of life.
For freshmen it is the beginning of studentship, the choice of development trajectory, for senior students - another step forward to the declared goal, for teachers - new projects and discoveries, the joy of meeting with their students.
I am certain that more achievements and victories await us this academic year. We have every possibility for that: consolidated team of teachers and students, modern scientific and educational basis, strong infrastructure and possibility to develop ourselves and the University.
Today Derzhavin University is the largest scientific and educational center in the region and one of the leading and dynamically developing higher educational institutions in Russia. The goal of our team is to become an effective base for self-realization of our students and to become a truly scientific and educational corporation for faculty and staff. We want to become a point of innovative development of Tambov region, a platform for science and business collaboration. We do everything to make Derzhavin University an attraction for intellectual elite and a recognizable brand not only in Russia, but also abroad.
In a new academic year we would like to wish all Derzhavin students fruitful work, personal growth, professional achievements, health and well-being! Let years at our native university become for each of us time of great achievements and changes!
