In 2016 Chelyabinsk State University celebrates its 40th anniversary. Over these years the University has become one of the leading South Ural educational and scientific centers, an integral part of the region, and, last but not least, a home for everyone who had ever crossed its threshold. A bright example is our students, teachers, employees, and numerous graduates. Here scientific projects and educational initiatives emerge, discoveries are made and knowledge of several generations is kept. University is a place for meetings with tutors and friends, with one’s future, the foundation for which is laid here.
