RGGU is not "an inefficient university"

This petition expresses the solidarity of international students and scholars with their peers at the Russian State University of the Humanities (RGGU). This university is one of Russia's leading institutions of higher education and has no place on the Ministry's list of "inefficient universities," which are now in danger of closure, mergers, or external reorganization: http://lenta.ru/articles/2012/11/02/minobr . In particular, this petition challenges the university's appearance on this list by addressing one of the (highly problematic) criteria by which that list was produced: the degree of the institution's internationalization.

This petition was delivered to:
  • To the Russian Ministry of Education and Science
