Restoring an icon
of academic identity
Fundraising efforts underway to protect the architectural inheritance of Ukraine’s most celebrated university
²n the early 1990s one of the most potent symbols of Ukraine’s reemerging independent identity was the return of Kyiv Mohyla Acad¬emy as the nation’s flagship university. However, while patriots toasted the return of an institute which had for centuries served as a seat of learning for Ukraine’s leaders, the sheer scale of the task was daunting. During the Soviet period many of the academy’s older buildings had been neglected and allowed to fall into a state of disrepair, but with priority given in the early 1990s to getting undergraduates back into the classroom as quickly as possible, large scale restoration works addressing the university’s infrastructure problems had to take a back seat. Twenty years later, the issue of architectural upkeep is once again moving to the top of the Kyiv Mohyla Academy’s agenda as university leaders look to protect the institute’s priceless architectural and spiritual inheritance.
