Following a directive of the Rector, 32 HSE staff members have been awarded Acknowledgement Medals for their professional achievements and devotion to work. The award ceremony was held for the first time at the HSE Cultural Centre on Pokrovsky Boulevard.

HSE Rector Yaroslav Kuzminov, who personally presented the awards, thanked his colleagues. ‘I want to thank you all. It’s surprising to learn that a very young person has been working at the HSE for 10, sometimes 15, or even 20 years. The most important thing is that you not notice the passage of time and not count the days, so that we all feel good at work. It does not matter how old a person is, it is important that he or she is ready to learn new things, grow, and reach new heights.’ The Rector also noted that HSE is distinguished by ‘an atmosphere of academic freedom and academic respect for each other’. He recalled the important objective of the higher education institution. ‘Our country has a very short history of political life, a very short history of civic activity and a very short history of politeness on the streets. The University must compensate for all this, and teach people.’ According to the Rector, the most important thing is that people at the university not impose their ideas on anyone, but only inform them and try to convince them. ‘When you start imposing something without explanation, you turn into an old supervisor. None of us want to be the one, we all want to be young and cool.’
