Date of material placement: 1-11-2013, 19:06.
The North-Caucasus Federal University hosted Deputy Prime Minister – Presidential Envoy to the North Caucasus Alexander Khloponin and acting Governor of the Stavropol Region Vladimir Vladimirov. After a meeting with Rector of the NCFU Alina Levitskaya the two guests followed to the Assembly Hall to answer questions coming from the student body.

The students wanted to learn about what should be done in order to improve the image of the North Caucasus and told about the most prominent social projects they are currently running. Alexander Khloponin took interest in many of the projects and even promised support to some, one them being launching Internet-TV for the District. He stated that this is the most promising broadcasting mode in the new age. Presidential Envoy mentioned the Saints Cyril and Methodius Conference held at the NCFU on an annual basis which is aiming at improving the status of the Russian Language as the common official language in the Caucasus and the Russian culture in the region as a mediator in the dialogue of cultures here. Alexander Khloponin also said that a Festival of Russian Theatres could be held along with the Conference, which would only add to the scale and coverage of the project.

Many students asked about the Caucasus Youth Forum MACHUK as for many of them it looked like the grants were awarded not for the best and most exciting proposals. To this the Envoy stressed that the organizers never try just to award the grants as they come. The idea of Mashuk can not be turned into an arena for raising money and the projects to be submitted here can not be purely commercial yet they should contain ideas to attract as many active people as possible around the most relevant and urgent issues; besides, those invited to join projects can live not in the North Caucasus only yet can come from other Russian regions as well.

The NCFU Rector, in turn, stressed that work with potential members of Mashuk should start long before the forum is launched, which would make the proposals submitted both interesting indeed and up to the highest standard. The North-Caucasus Federal University is willing to offer advisory services to the students from the entire region so they can present proper and viable projects.

Another important issue discussed was student sports in the region. Alexander Khloponin stated immediately that student sports lays basis for professional sport achievements; however it is also important that young people should develop stable adherence to sports while studying. He called them to form their teams and join any contests they can; the NCFU has among its students Olympic and European champions, which adds to the image of the University and encourages many to play sports. Presidential Envoy also promised he would apply al his effort to help the University develop a powerful sports facility because for the North-Caucasus Federal University this is a must!

One more question touched upon at the meeting was volunteer movement, which, as Mr. Khloponin believes, should be part of every decent man’s life: "I really like the European experience where volunteer activities are just part and parcel of any student’s life. Unfortunately this culture is only developing with us, we have to promote it. I think each student should implement at least one volunteer project. As for us – we will give this initiative every support we can”.

When leaving Alexander Khloponin noted that the key to success belongs, first of all, to being proactive and self-motivated. And he is happy to see so many active and creative students at the NCFU.

Vladimir Vladimirov assured everyone that such meetings would become regular because they are not only filled with youth and energy but are also exciting both for the regional administration and for the University. Rector Alina Levitskaya and the students thanked the visitors for a very active meeting even though many questions still remained untouched, which was quite expected due to the tight schedules that Presidential Envoy and acting Governor always have. And this only makes this visit even more meaningful for the North-Caucasus Federal University!
