A Word from the Rector
Welcome to the Institute for the Humanities and Information Technologies (IGUMO&IT)!
From a college with some 20 students founded at the dawn of Perestroyka, IGUMO has grown into an full-scale innovative institution of higher education with a mission to advance knowledge, promote teaching and research, and help modern Russian society to discover new ways to overcome its most pressing problems.
IGUMO's academic environment attracts outstanding students and scholars from around the country and abroad, while its generous financial aid programmes make IGUMO accessible to students from all economic backgrounds. IGUMO is proud of its ties with the local community. Our musical and theatrical offerings, public lectures, and forums enhance the intellectual and cultural vibrancy of the region.
At IGUMO, education is limited neither by time nor space. It is an ongoing and restless research, one to which this Institute is dedicated. It is a pleasure for me to welcome you to IGUMO.
Rector of IGUMO&IT, Professor, Doctor of Juridical Science (PhD, Doctor of Law)

There are numerous computer programs. Modern designers should know how to operate them. However, masters able to create projects with their own hands without using technologies are of no less importance. That’s why now calligraphy is one of the most popular branches of art.
