  • History

    Ekaterynoslavsky University (now Dnepropetrovsk National University of Oles Gonchar) was founded during the Ukrainian Hetman Pavlo Skoropadsky state in 1918. In 1920 Ekaterynoslavsky University was transformed into Ekaterynoslavsky (later in Dnipropetrovsk) Institute of Education, which operated until 1933.

    In 1933 Dnepropetrovsk State University was restored, however the revival of the university coincided with the intensification of Stalin's totalitarian regime, which led to mass arrests in a university setting, and irreparable losses of personnel. During World War II some faculty and students went to defend their homeland from the Nazi invaders; others approached Victory Day, working in the evacuation.

    In September 2000 Dnepropetrovsk State University acquired the status of a national institution.
