    Do not forget what the Holocaust meant

    The UN Information Center for Romania and the Romanian-American University held Saturday, January 29, 2011, the International Day of Commemoration of Holocaust victims, a viewing of the film "Dare to Resist".

    "Dare to Resist" is the story of three teenage girls: Faye Schulman - a photographer and partisan in the forests of Poland (now located on the territory of Belarus), Barbara Rodbell - a ballerina in Amsterdam who illegally provided subversive newspapers and food and transportation for Jews hiding from the Nazi regime and Shulamit Lack - who procured false documents and gave shelter to Jews wishing to flee Hungary.

    Through this event we intended to raise the participant's awareness of human rights, tolerance and discrimination, and also the effects of the violation of human rights. At the end of the movie, the participants were able to share their feelings about the movie, and to discuss in a relaxed atmosphere about this history lesson called the Holocaust.

    Opening Ceremony of the 2011-2012 Academic Year

    The auditorium of the Romanian-American University of Bucharest became overcrowded today, October 3, 2011, at the opening ceremonies of the academic year 2011-2012.

    Important guests, representatives of academia and business in Romania and the United States of America, such as Prof. Emil Constantinescu, PhD, former president of Romania, Prof. Radu Ghetea, PhD, president of the Bankers Association of Romania, Prof. Dumitru Miron, PhD, vice-rector of the Academy of Economic Studies, and currently president of the Romanian-American Foundation for the Promotion of Education and Culture, Gilda Lazar, corporate affairs manager at JTI or Prof. Donald Corbin, PhD, from James Madison University - Virginia have been acclaimed by more of the 500 students of the Romanian-American University after their speech, which has focused on the opportunities that higher education offers young people nowadays.

    "Being aware of the competitive pressures triggered by the fact that we operate on a national market with over 100 higher education institutions and an European market with over 4,000 higher education institutions preparing millions of students, we propose, in the academic year 2011 - 2012 (...), for the leading strategic objectives to aim at increasing the international exposure of the University and at appropriating, based on coherent partnership grounds, the business environment, the employers, in their entirety" said Prof. Ovidiu Folcut, PhD, Rector of the Romanian-American University, in his speech at the opening ceremony of the academic year.

    The internationalization of education is not an empty concept, said Prof. Ovidiu Folcut, PhD, proof in this respect being the large number of partnerships entered into, over time, by the institution with prestigious universities in the U.S. and Europe. "Over one third of the mobility enjoyed by private universities in Romania, in European programs, belongs to the Romanian-American University, and we believe this is not an accident, and on the other hand, the presence in the academic year of 2010-2011of renowned professors from top universities (and I would like to name here Prof. Jeffrey Miron - Director of Undergraduate Studies, Department of Economics - HARVARD UNIVERSITY) and constant collaborators in the last 20 years of the University, such as Prof. James McCollum of the University of Alabama in Hunstville, or Prof. Bijan Saadatmand from James Madison University, to name just two of the dear friends of this University, are a direct confirmation that internationalization is not a concept without coverage as regards our University", remarked Rector Folcut.

    Moreover, the hierarchy of universities in Romania, per areas of study, conducted by the Ministry of Education, Research and Youth, recently released, places the Romanian-American University on a leading position.

    "The hierarchy per areas (...) proves that in the eight fields of study that the University covers under its educational offer, two programs are on the podium, other 5 rank on the 6th and, respectively 16th position, one program, which we haven't offered in the last two academic years, is to be terminated, being on a less favorable position, namely 38. Of course, our objective is to rank an increasing favorable position in any top to be released, but we deem that the most appropriate assessment of our work’s outcomes, respectively our graduates' quality, will always be made by employers", said Rector Ovidiu Folcut.

    Our collaborations entered into in the previous academic year with top companies and financial-banking institutions such as Microsoft, JTI, Toyota, GE, Procter & Gamble, Henkel, Honda, Renault, BRD, BCR, CEC, Unicredit Tiriac Bank or ING and with other leading entities in their fields of operation, such as American Chamber of Commerce or Junior Achievement, are proof of the employers' favorable position towards the students and graduates of the Romanian-American University.


    In his turn, the former president of Romania, Prof. Emil Constantinescu, PhD, expressed the emotion caused by his participation in the opening ceremonies of the academic year in an institution that brought to mind one of the most remarkable experiences he had. "Twenty years ago, I attended, as a professor, the opening of the academic year at Duke University, one of the most prestigious U.S. universities", President Constantinescu said. "Today, I chose to be here, and I preferred the Romanian-American University, at the expense of my own university, because the Romanian-American University represents, for Romania, the challenge with a university such as Duke University which, for me, was a second significant experience of my life" added President Emil Constantinescu.

    In his message to students, Radu Ghetea, president of the Association of Bankers of Romania, noticed the large number of the Romanian-American University's graduates, who are today, his workmates, as employees of the Romanian banking system, and underlined the importance of attitude and manner in which young people must be prepared in universities.

    Gilda Lazar, former journalist, now corporate affair manager of the JTI, a supporter of several projects initiated by the Romanian-American University, sent students a message to keep learning because "a degree does not help, attitude does ... To want to do, that's what counts", said Gilda Lazar.



    Stand out of the crowd!

    The Romanian-American University's Students' Club is looking for talented, passionate and remarkable students who are interested in their personal and professional development and are willing to carry on the values that they've acquired in time.

    If you consider yourself one of the above, we invite you to the INFO SESSION, Tuesday, 18th of October, at 13:20 p.m., in the Jean Monnet Amphitheatre (3rd floor) to know each other better and to talk about what it means to be a member of CS-URA and how the experience gained with us can help you in your future.

    "Occupy Wall Street" Debate Demonstration

    The Romanian-American University, in cooperation with the Romanian Association of Debate, Oratory and Rhetoric (ARDOR) Muntenia, would like to invite you to the "Occupy Wall Street" debate demonstration, held on Friday (09/12/2011) at 10:30, inside the RAU's Amfitheater 1.

    "Debate" is a structured form of educational argumentation, composed of equally staffed teams. They are placed in a position to highlight the "pros" and "counter" arguments for both sides of various issues on which people, though well intentioned, can disagree.

    To what end does a University need a Debate Club?
    First, to learn argumentation. This is the primary reason and by itself, it could be considered sufficient. Whether the approach on the topic is practical or theoretical, reasoning is vital to decide in many situations that arise differences of opinion, questions or uncertainties. The ability to work in a team, to make rigorous documentation, identify credible sources of information, the ability to create powerful public speeches, to sharpen your humor and fair play, could be other gains. Such facts, and many more we invite you to join us on our path of discovery.

    This initiative represents the first step for the creation of a new Debate Club within the Romanian-American University. You will have the opportunity to see professional debaters in action.

    We are waiting for you!
