The ASPU Student Scientific Society held a meeting which was attended the university’s leadership.
Mariam Ispiryan, ASPU Vice-Rector for Educational and Scientific Affairs, expressed hope that the youth-led structure, which has been operating in parallel with the Student Council for years, will become active again.
The vice-rector noted that they still have a lot of work to do, but as a student-centered structure the university is ready to support and promote academic and research activities. "2022 is a jubilee year for the pedagogical ‘forge,’ and though we are living through difficult times, we should overcome the existing challenges with honour."
The 47 members present at the SSS meeting elected Edik Gulyan as Chairperson for the session. The latter promised to be objective and conduct SSS meetings with great responsibility.
Edik Gulyan presented a report on the formation of the Student Scientific Society, resumption of its activities and the work done so far.
He says history testifies to the role and importance of the structure at the university; under different names, the structure has been operating since the first years of the university's establishment. "The new SSS charter approved by the Scientific Council can be considered as one of the best. It has been amended and supplemented in different circles of the university, with the main emphasis being put on scientific thinking in pedagogy, besides, the presented goals have been separated from actions and problems,” Mr. Gulyan said.
Margarita Shahnazaryan, a student of the Faculty of Mathematics, Physics and Informatics, was elected SSS’s new president. The attendees highly appreciated her activity and expressed hope that the newly elected president will overcome all difficulties [onher way] with honour.
Paruyr Galstyan, President of the ASPU Student Council, also congratulated Margarita Shahnazaryan.
The latter is sure that cooperation between the two student structures will be effective thanks to mutual support and exchange of experience.
