It was firstly founded as Kyiv-Mohyla Academy in 1632 and constituted an important intellectual center of the forming at that time Ukrainian culture. In 1991, Ukraine declared its independence, where after the university celebrated its re-establishment as the educational institution. Today, it is one of the most advanced and reform-oriented universities in Ukraine with a strong focus on Western European and Anglo-Saxon education traditions. Noteworthy, the first protest waves of pro-European students in 2013 have been predominantly initiated by the Mohyla Academy students, which later became known as "Euro-Maidan". The National University of the “Kyiv-Mohyla Academy” is now a center of the pro-European reform movement which has brought forth a number of innovative initiatives and institutions within the last few years.
