In­sti­tute Be­comes a Univer­sity. What’s Next?

Uzbekistan Today (English) - - KALEIDOSCOPE -

The Uzbek State In­sti­tute of Phys­i­cal Cul­ture and Sports has moved to Chirchik and was re­or­ga­nized as a cor­re­spond­ing univer­sity. The sta­tus has been up­graded. But when will this in­sti­tu­tion get the ap­pro­pri­ate rat­ing among the coun­try’s uni­ver­si­ties?

The ef­forts started with the con­sol­i­da­tion of the ma­te­rial and tech­ni­cal base. The first step is taken.

Dur­ing the cel­e­bra­tion of na­tional in­de­pen­dence, a fourstory ed­u­ca­tional build­ing re­con­structed within a short time pe­riod was put into op­er­a­tion in a fes­tive at­mos­phere. Mod­ern con­di­tions for full-fledged work of five fac­ul­ties, 18 de­part­ments and nine spe­cial­ized de­part­ments have been cre­ated. A cur­ricu­lum for more than 330 teach­ers is be­ing de­vel­oped, of which over seventy have a sci­en­tific de­gree. It is note­wor­thy that the univer­sity ac­tively co­op­er­ates with sim­i­lar ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions in China, Moldova, Rus­sia, South Korea, Ger­many.

“Not ac­ci­den­tally has our higher ed­u­ca­tion in­sti­tu­tions un­der­gone re­or­ga­ni­za­tion,” Klara Shakir­janova, teacher with more than 40-yearold ex­pe­ri­ence, says. “At the dis­posal of al­most four thou­sand stu­dents – un­der­grad­u­ates and grad­u­ates – is a mod­ern in­door arena, which hosts not only the na­tional cham­pi­onships, but also in­ter­na­tional tour­na­ments. Ac­tively used are pools, halls for box­ing, taek­wondo, gym­nas­tics, weightlift­ing, ten­nis courts, track and field ath­let­ics, sec­tor for throw­ing. They will also be re­con­structed.”

In the next stages of con­struc­tion, it is planned to build a gym­na­sium, where 600 ath­letes, a foot­ball sta­dium, three are­nas meet­ing worlds stan­dards, as well as a stu­dent dorm of the univer­sity for 1,600 beds.
