The idea to create the Association of the University Graduates was initiated by a group of graduates and lecturers of the KubSU Faculty of Management in the early 2003.
At the first stage it has been decided to organize the Graduates Association as a structural subdivision of the University under the auspices of the Faculty of Management. It is planned that at the second stage of its development the Association will be functioning under the auspices of Kuban State University, and finally it will be reorganized into an independent non-profit organization.
In the course of the preparatory work, a survey has been carried out to determine the urgency of this organization; draft Statute of the Association has been developed and approved by the President of the University; a Questionnaire for graduates has been worked out; the construction of the graduates data base has been started. The plans and undertakings of the initiative group of the Association were discussed and found support at the Day of Science held by the Faculty of Management on April 24, 2003.
On May 17, 2003 the idea of the Association was presented at the “Vypusknik” (Graduate) Discussion Club, the participants of which discussed the importance of creating the Association, issues and problems, urgent for graduates.
