Short history

We take pride in being the first modern university of Romania, inheriting values, reputation and educational knowledge. Established in October 1860, Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi is the oldest university in our country. Its history follows the patterns of the Romanian nation. The University of Iasi, as it was named at first, was founded only one year after the establishment of the Romanian state, in 1859 and it was both a result and a catalyst of the rise of the Romanian national spirit. It was no historical accident the fact that the city of Iasi became the host of the highest institution in Romanian education: for ages, Iasi represented a privileged cultural area, keeping the native and European spirit of the culture in a conquered territory. In the 17th century, the academy in Iasi was already synchronized with the European spirit and model. Courses were taught in Greek, the language of culture in the European Orient.



The 19th century saw the rise of the nationalist spirit, Romanian language, culture and conscience. The solemn inauguration of the University of Iasi, on October 26th, 1860, was to mark a long evolution and it represented the first great step from medieval high school to modern higher education.



With only three faculties in the beginning, law, philosophy and theology, the university developed to be a truly European academic centre. The mobility of the teaching staff, students, books and ideas placed the University of Iasi on a professional and scientific level that was widely recognized.



After World War II, the structural change of the political regime in Romania determined deep transformations in higher education, too. It also imposed a new ideological horizon, a dominant immobility and dogmatism that obstructed initiatives. Higher education was isolated while traditional relationships established with the great Western schools and trends became very difficult to maintain. In our university, the structure of faculties changed several times after 1948. The eight faculties (Mathematics - Mechanics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology - Geography, Law, Philology, History - Philosophy and Economics) ensured the training of specialists for fundamental education and research fields. It is important to underline that what was imposed in terms of dogmatism and ideology had only a formal official value, while most of the teaching staff continued to keep their dignity and academic status. Concessions were formal, not basic. It was a price that had to be paid for saving both academia and academics.



The falling of the totalitarian regime in December 1989 opened new perspectives for Romanian education. The reconstruction activity was spontaneous and radical, involving all fields: structure, curriculum, communication system, human resources. University autonomy, decentralization and freedom of decision lead Romanian higher education towards new horizons. Still in a difficult financial situation, it has been gradually regaining its place in the European community.



Alexandru Ioan Cuza University of Iasi has the revelation of freedom of thought and of action. We feel it in the quality of teaching and research, in the determination to achieve a work of excellence.
