The last few months were filled with a lot of significant new pillars in Romanian-American University (RAU) history. Please allow us to select only three of them.
Within the Council Meeting of August 24, 2015, the Romanian Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (ARACIS) has validated the external evaluation report (institutional report) for the Romanian-American University (RAU), the approved rating being the highest possible ranking: “High Degree of Confidence”.
On October 1, 2015, on the occasion of the official opening of the new 2015-2016 academic year at the Romanian-American University (RAU), held in the Aula Magna, in the presence of students, graduate students, teachers and distinguished guests, RAU Rector Ovidiu Folcut and Professor Dumitru Miron, President of the Romanian-American Foundation for the Promotion of Education and Culture have reconfirmed: that at RAU knowledge is managed towards wisdom, competing on learning how to build trust and accountability by promoting a better relationship between education and practice, fostering innovation as a multi-dimensional challenge; the continuous RAU’s qualitative preoccupation with a better understanding of students’ rising needs and expectations in academic quality, employability and the facilities offered to them, and delivering further innovation, by making research sustainable, and adequately utilizing technology in integrating and improving administration and student support, while best approaching the increasingly international context and responsibly and accountably teaching students to adequately apply what they have learned.
At the end of the same month, on October 30, 2015, on the occasion of the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Association of Faculties of Economics in Romania (AFER), RAU Rector Ovidiu Folcut has received the distinction of Honorary Membership conferred by AFER (the architect of the dialogue about the continuous improvement of economic higher education) upon persons of great distinction who have rendered exceptional service. Professor Ovidiu Folcut was also awarded the “Diploma of Excellence”, two years ago, on the occasion of the celebration of 170 Years of Economic Higher Education in Romania and of the 100th Anniversary of the initiation of the First Congress of Romanian Economists.
But as School remains the place where each generation will pass on its values, and as „a picture is worth a thousand words”, we are convinced that the images below are speaking for themselves.
