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.
RSU was founded in 1915, as a women's teacher training institute. In 1918, it was renamed as the Ryazan State Pedagogical Institute. In 1930 it was restructured and again renamed as the Ryazan State Pedagogical University. 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[update], they enrolled roughly 5,500 students and employed 400 faculty and administrative staff.
The university began to use its present name in 2006.
