NaUKMA Presidents Address In 2012, Kyiv-Mohyla Academy celebrates the 20th anniversary of its rebirth. 20 years ago, in the early 90s, a group of enthusiasts started building the first high-quality pro-Ukrainian university, oriented at world academic and educational standards. Reviewing our accomplishments after these 20 years, we can say with confidence that we have already built such a university. Kyiv-Mohyla Academy during all its history was much more than just a university. It was a focal point for national development. It became the place where an innovative educational model was created, and today this model is being disseminated nationwide. The National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy is one of the intellectually strongest and most prestigious universities of our country, the initiator of most educational reforms introduced in Ukraine. Vyacheslav Briukhovetskyi Hero of Ukraine, Doctor of Philology, Honorary President of the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy

NaUKMA brings together the best, the most talented people «of all estates and titles» (academicians, students, businesspeople, public activists, politicians and artists) inspiring them to achieve that which seemed impossible when these people were unconnected. Through the vehicle of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, Ukraine is returning to its European intellectual and academic roots.

Our goal is to create a high-quality Ukrainian University, able to compete at an international level. This journey of 20-years, and our achievements along the way, allow us to state with confidence that the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy is better integrated into the world academic community than any other Ukrainian university, and that all educational innovations that have appeared in Ukraine after 1991, were first introduced in our university. The principles we follow when developing our university derive from traditions established by Petro Mohyla during the early 17th cen­tury, and revived by Vyacheslav Briukhovetskyi in the late 20th century: innovation, high quality of education, honesty, distinctive corporate culture, and professionalism. All this helps us to integrate Ukraine into the world educational and academic context. Serhiy Kvit Doctor of Philology, Professor, President of the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy

Traditionally, Kyiv-Mohyla Academy has been a territory of freedom — intellectual, academic and creative. Therefore, we consistently defend university autonomy. We believe that this must be the focal point for higher education reform in Ukraine. Today NaUKMA is implementing a new vision of the university into Ukrainian society: the university as not just a place where knowledge is passed on from professors to students, but also a reputable expert community, involved in all social processes; a place where scientific research is conducted and new valuable knowledge is created. The contents of the education provided at Kyiv-Mohyla Academy has changed with time, but the main goal has always remained the same: to nurture a critically thinking, professional and patriotic person, and an active citizen. Firmly rooted in its historical traditions, NaUKMA always was and always will be open to changes. Our university itself is an agent of social change in Ukraine. Together we are developing the University that changes the country. We Honour the Past, We Create the Future.

History During the period of its prosperity (17–18th centuries), Kyiv-Mohyla Academy considerably influenced the intellectual, scientific, educational, cultural and spiritual life of Ukraine. Its alumni shaped social and political views, influenced the national consciousness of Ukrainians.
