Ryazan State University

The Ryazan State University named for S. A. Yesenin (Russian: Рязанский государственный университет имени С. А. Есенина) is a university in Ryazan, Ryazan Oblast, Russia. It was founded in 1915. It bears the name of Russian poet Sergei Yesenin, who grew up in the region.[1]

History[edit]

RSU was founded in 1915, as a women's teacher training institute. In 1918, it was renamed as the Ryazan State Pedagogical Institute.[2] In 1930 it was restructured and again renamed as the Ryazan State Pedagogical University.[3] It began to expand its course offerings beyond teacher training in the 1980s; in 1992, it was one of the first pedagogical universities to be granted full university status. As of 1999, they enrolled roughly 5,500 students and employed 400 faculty and administrative staff.[4]

The university began to use its present name in 2006.[5]
