Curatorial hours play a special role in the educational process.

This form received approving feedback, because in accordance with the defined topics, 12 general faculty curatorial hours were held, 128 number of students-participants were increased to 4 thousand and the formal curatorial hours in academic groups were minimized.
The university curatorial hour "First was the Word, and the Word was God" with the participation of leading actors of the Regional Academic Music and Drama Theater them. M. Sadovsky.

Parents 'meetings, traditionally held in September at all faculties with the participation of the pro-rectors, deans, curators responsible for hostels, who analyze the success of students' studies, their participation in university life, and determine ways to improve youth creative growth, have become an effective form of interaction with parents.
Meetings with students who live in hostels are a positive result in the educational process, adherence to the rules of residence in dormitories and ensuring improvement of living conditions.
Thus, during the period September-October 2017, 6 such meetings were held with the participation of the university management, deans of faculties and heads of structural divisions. The meetings were attended by about 1.5 thousand students. In the dynamic development of the university, strengthening its positive image, a large role is assigned to the bodies of student self-government: the student council and the student union. Student government and student union representatives are members of the Academic Council of the University. In order to work closely together, the university management constantly meets with the student asset.
An excellent incentive for excellent student learning and self-development was the annual Distinction of the President of the University "Best Faculty Student", "Best College Student", which is twice a year received by students who are excellent students and take an active part in the life of the university.
