University of Uzbekistan



At the end of XIX century there was an idea to organize a University inTurkestan, a motherland of the great scholars. This idea was written on the pages of the newspapers and journals such as "Tarjimon", "Oina" etc. This idea was given also in the regulations of the society of jadids "Turon". The freedom loving national enlighteners approved the idea of the organiza-tion of modern university and formed a special council. The council compiled the system of academics, the programmes and faculties of the future university.

On May 12, 1918 the great enlightener Munavvarqori Abdurashidhonov (1878-1931) as a rector declared the official opening of the national university in the old city side of Tashkent. He underlined that the university would contribute to know better the Motherland and nation, can serve as the means for studying science and technology by nation. The national university had lower, middle and higher education forms and the higher level had five faculties: literature and philosophy, economics and social sciences, agriculture and biology, medicine and mathematics, industry and techniques. A number of prominent statesmen, men of science, as well as outstanding representatives of cultural alignment from Uzbekistan and neighboring countries are closely connected with the university.

In 1921 the university had the faculties of medicine, physics and mathematics, social worker, history and philology, engineering, agriculture and military training. During 1927 - 1931 on the bases of the faculties 120 educational establishments were organized. These are the institutes of medicine, agriculture, national economy, polytechnics, and the higher educational establishments.

In 1943 the Academy of Science was established. 1000 years later after the foundation of theMamunAcademy, the oldest academy in the world, a new academy has been established inTurkistan. 6 from 11 academicians and 7 corresponding members worked at theNational University, the rest of them had also contacts at the University. During the 1940-1950 years the scholars of the University began to apply their scientific potential to solve the practical problems of the life.
