Message of The Rector

The year 2012 is and will mean for “Ion Ionescu de la Brad” University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine a true turning point on its historical becoming the 100-year anniversary of agronomic higher education in Iaşi.

With this Centenary year now in front of us, we move into our second century with a sense of optimism, since modern university has to remain committed to its core mission, that of training, debating and promoting innovative ideas, research and innovation, thus continuing to polarize creative intelligence and orient its goals according to the needs and interests of society. The trinomial of teaching, scientific and practical training activities, permanently connected to national and international framework of best practices, has been the successful formula that has ensured the continuity and progress of the university.

Lately, our university has co-operation established relationships with over 50 universities and research institutes from Europe, Asia, the United States of America, declining its policy of total openness towards international co-operation.

Over the years, the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine, Iasi, has become a leading institution of the Romanian agricultural education, due to the activity of academic personalities that have taken major responsibilities, always considering the agricultural science a key factor for the development of modern society and provision of general welfare.

A century after its foundation, the university benefits of a modern campus, located in the most scenic borough of the town, the Copou Hill, a campus that provides students with the best facilities for individual study, research, practical training and recreation. Aware of the quality of the training environment, reflected by the climate, atmosphere, institutional culture, our university has paid much attention to this peculiar aspect, making it one of its paramount priorities. Combining tradition and experience with a most dynamic and modern approach of the teaching-learning and research processes, all 200 members of the academic staff offer innovative strategies and ways of learning that respond to the standards of shaping the necessary skills that would provide students with the best possible employment opportunities. From this perspective, the faculties and departments of the university constitute fundamental elements of the educational structure chain, responsible for providing the quality parameters of education and research.

The University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine, Iasi, awarded a "high level of trust" qualification after the Romanian Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education assessment, is open to all gifted and talented students from every corner of the globe willing to build solid careers, and for that we remain committed to educating them, to offering them a bustling university environment to match their talent, a learning environment fit for future innovators. Whatever they may choose to study, be it Agriculture, Horticulture, Animal Science or Veterinary Medicine our university is a choice to consider.

In the years to come I am most confident that the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine Iasi will continue to be a leading presence within the academic community, will continue to work on some of the most important problems the Romanian agriculture and rural areas face, never ceasing to be concerned with modernising the educational act, never forgetting to create opportunities for the intellectual and professional development of its students.

Our centenary mission is to inspire the next generation of great minds.
