It was fulfilled 115 years since the opening of the first higher educational institution in the East of Russia - the Eastern Institute

October 21 marks the 115th anniversary of the opening of the first higher educational institution in the East of Russia - the Oriental Institute, the legal successor of which is the Far Eastern Federal University. By this date, by order of FEFU Rector Sergey Ivants, the historical name was restored in the structure of the university. The School of Regional and International Studies, where Orientalists are being trained today and all research related to the Asia-Pacific region is concentrated, has received a new name - "Oriental Institute - School of Regional and International Studies".

"The name of the Oriental Institute initially laid its main focus on the study of all processes and problems associated with the East of Russia and the Asian region. More than a century ago, when Emperor Nicholas II established a new educational institution with his decree, the eastern direction was extremely important for the state. But even at the present stage, Eastern policy remains a priority for Russia. Therefore, the restoration of the Eastern Institute, on the one hand, historical continuity, and on the other - the requirement of time ", - said Sergei Ivanets.

The rector also stressed that Russian President Vladimir Putin has set a key task for the Far Eastern Federal University for in-depth expertise and evaluation of projects and programs for regional development in the Russian Far East. Such activities should cover both the scientific and technological, innovative and technological, and social, humanitarian and economic areas.

"In all these directions the university has a powerful potential, in different schools there are specialists who seriously study the regional problems. In order to concentrate this potential and successfully solve the tasks assigned to FEFU, an analytical department with highly professional specialists with experience in performing important state tasks has been created in the structure of the Eastern Institute. One of the key customers for this structure will be the Ministry for the Development of the Far East, interested in obtaining high-quality analytical materials, "Sergei Ivanets said.
