Rector’s Word - 2016

"Access to Success!" (Motto UAO)

"The management team of Agora University of Oradea assumes transparency as an essential component of quality." (Mission assumed by the rector and his team)
Agora University of Oradea is a higher education institution of private law and public utility, founded in 2000 by Agora Foundation,  accredited by ARACIS in 2010 and  validated by the Romanian Parliament by Law 59/2012, as a part of national system of higher education in Romania.

On 24.04.2012 I was elected rector by all teachers and students of the University Agora, the legislature from 2012 to 2016, and in 2016  I was re-elected for the mandate 2016-2020.

Rector legally represents the University Agora of Oradea (UAO) in the National Council of Rectors in relations with the Ministry of National Education and its subordinate entities or advisory (ARACIS, CNATDCU, UEFISCDI etc.), with central and local government, educational institutions and national research and abroad, with domestic and international public bodies.

Although young and small, with two faculties (Faculty of Economics and Faculty of Law and Administration), University Agora is extremely dynamic and active. Instead of a quantitative prefer qualitative development.

Without false modesty, Agora University have some performance difficult to achieve even some old and larger academic institutions: 5 research centers (two international), a publishing house editing 5 international scientific journals in English language (one of which is indexed in ISI Web of Science), 5 international conferences in English, a computer laboratory, a forensic laboratory, three rooms with smart boards for videoconferencing courses, three lecture halls with over 100 seats, platform for e- functional learning, and 10 POS-DRU successfully  projects.

If you agree a higher quality education, through modern teaching technologies, in full transparency and legality, come with the greatest confidence to University Agora.

In total transparency spirit that characterizes us, I invite you to read the document below: Rector's report about UAO 2015 (Cf. article 130 of Law 1/2011): PDF

Success to  Access!

Rector,  Prof.dr. Ioan Dziţac
