RUDN University plants a “tree of friendship” on the Friendship Alley of the Russian-Armenian (Slavic) University
The first trees in the Friendship Alley on the territory of RAU were planted with the support of the prefecture of the Central Administrative District of Moscow in 2012. In 2019, a silver spruce appeared on the Alley dedicated to the 60th anniversary of the RUDN University. The “Friendship Tree” on the Friendship Alley symbolizes the interaction of two universities.
“We are connected by long-standing friendship - practically since the founding of our university. "Tree of friendship" dedicated to the 60th anniversary of RUDN University is a symbol of long-term and mutually beneficial relations between RUDN University and RAU. I believe that this tree will become a reflection of friendship not only between universities, but also between the peoples of Russia and Armenia,” said Vice-Rector for Student Relations Sergey Bazavluk.
“It’s a great pleasure for us to plant this beautiful tree in honor of the anniversary of RUDN, our partner and friend,” said RAU Rector Armen Darbinyan.
Also, during the visit to Armenia, university leaders discussed the issues of academic mobility of teachers and students, as well as the possibilities of joint research and development.
