Old Academic Building


Renewal of the historic landmark buildings in Kyiv-Mohyla Academy will be a testament to the fact that Kyiv and Ukraine possess, respect and preserve their own cultural and educational shrines, like Cambridge or Oxford in Great Britain, Sorbonne in Paris or Jagiellonian University in Krakow.
Vyacheslav Briukhovetsky, Kyiv-Mohyla Academy Honorary President

Celebrating its 395th anniversary on October 15, 2010, Kyiv-Mohyla Academy announced the launch of the Restoration campaign, aimed at raising funds for restoration of 11 unique buildings of 17th-19th centuries located on the University’s premises. Fundraising event took place in 2011.

Since its revival in 1992, Kyiv-Mohyla Academy singly, without having any support from the state, has kept the buildings out of decay, providing active and persistent fundraising for the most urgent maintenance and remedial works. Launching the ambitious Restoration Project, the University not just continues activity for renovating the physical state of the buildings, but also performs a socially important task attracting public attention to understanding of the process of historical monuments renewing as a weighty matter of state, and the University campus at Podil – as an important legacy for the whole Ukrainian nation.
