Students’ character building process is closely connected with an educational one. Our mission is not only to prepare a highly qualified specialist, but to bring up a real citizen of the society, a patriot. That is why we try to pay much attention to students’ leisure time especially those living in the dorms. We often organize KVNs, amateur talent groups’ parade, art festivals. The school of social professions has restarted working. Its activity is directed to bringing up the man respectful to history and culture of the native land.

The intensification of the social-and-economic and political transformations in Russia allots the tasks of bringing up the modern generation capable of active creative labor, being moral, preserving its physical and moral status. Character building is carried out on the ground of the "Character Building Concept of Ryazan State Agrotechnological University Named after Professor P.A.

Such a work is conducted according to the following directions: patriotic, labor, aesthetic, ecological and legal education.
