Founded in 1907
Plekhanov Russian University of Economics is the epitome of Russian
Federation diversity, reflecting the modern world in its wealth of
cultures, ethnicities, and creative ideas. PRUE students reflect this
diversity; they arrive from all over the Federation and different
parts of the world not only to gain professional knowledge, but to
enrich their intercultural experience and humane qualities as well.
Students at PRUE are in the unique position to experience a college
lifestyle in a city setting. Plekhanov University offers many of the
essential activities that are traditionally associated with college
student life, and its location in the center of Moscow creates a setting
that presents a myriad of non-traditional opportunities that will
supplement and accentuate the student life experience.
Students, lecturers and scientists at Plekhanov University are actively involved in social activities.
There is the Student Council that effectively work at the University. During 15 years, there have been enormous number of different projects initiated by the Council; some of them became annual events such as:
An off-site training for the first-year students – Activity School
Plekhanov Students' Day
University Birthday Ball
Miss of Plekhanov University Contest
Best Lecturer and Student Competition
and many other events.
Plekhanov Volunteer Group was formed recently in 2010. Volunteers help orphans and children with oncological other severe diseases. The Group holds children's charity events, contests and playing activities. In a word, volunteers do their best to make children feel happy.
There is the Trade Union Committee working successfully for many years in the University. Its main goals and objectives are expression, representation and protection of labor, social, economic and other legitimate rights and interests of its members.
Cooperation between the Trade Union Committee and the University administration is highly productive being based on the Collective Employment Agreement between the Plekhanov administration and Workers' Association which is an effective tool to reach social partnership. Trade Union activists are actively involved in socially significant commissions for the labor protection, time sheet accounting, social affairs, etc.
For those who are interested in the cultural component of social life there is the Cultural Center at the University
– the recreation center for social events, such as concerts, University amateur art performances, various contests, meetings, and festivities.
