Dear friends and colleagues!

This year, for the first time, the Government of the Russian Federation approved November 19 as the Day of the University Teacher!

I would like to extend the most sincere and warm congratulations on your professional holiday!

The profession of a teacher is called one of the most ancient and honorable in the world. And at the same time, each of us knows: there is nothing more difficult than teaching. We are all capable and even inclined to teach, but not everyone has a teaching talent. I am pleased to know that there are a lot of outstanding professionals at our university who are fluent in this secret and generously share their knowledge with their students. Young teachers, raised within the walls of our university, try to introduce all the newest and most advanced into teaching practice. Our colleagues, who have more than half a century of teaching experience behind, helped many of their students to achieve their goals in life…

There are a lot of unique, talented people in the large family of our university. Everyone who works with our students is working for tomorrow, for the future of our country. And everyone is responsible for the results of labor with his good name. There are many doctors, candidates of sciences and just practicing doctors among our graduates who proudly pronounce the names of their Mentors, their Teachers!

On this day, I want to express my deep gratitude for your work and dedication to the profession, and wish you good health, inexhaustible energy and inspiration in our hard work! And I express special gratitude to the veterans of pedagogical work, whose rich experience is a strong support for young specialists!!!
