80 years of creativity, work and achievements

Recently, Lviv Cooperative College of Economics and Law celebrated 80 years of its activity.

The history of the school began in 1939, when a cooperative technical college was established on the basis of the Jewish Cooperative Lyceum. During the independence of Ukraine it became a cooperative college of economics and law. Over the course of its long history, the institution has trained tens of thousands of specialists in various fields, the vast majority of whom have worked in regional consumer unions, district consumer unions, business structures and banking institutions. Our graduates have become deputies of the Regional Council, the Parliament of Ukraine, and employees of executive bodies.

Celebrations marking the anniversary of the college took place on October 14, the day of the Protection by the Blessed Virgin. Students, their parents, college teachers, veterans, and consumer cooperatives were warmly welcomed by Natalia Zubko, the Director of the College.

The close relationship between students and teachers was felt in a shared flash mob. The performance of the guests – the folk choreographic ensemble “Rosinka”, which delighted the audience with wonderful folk dances, was also fascinating. Among its artists was a student of the College, the winner of song festivals L.Suvorovа, she handed the festive bread to the Chairman of the Board of the regional consumer union Mykhailo Vanivsky. Welcoming the cooperative students he thanked the institution for quality training of the staff for consumer cooperatives.

Cooperative College holds leading positions among the other colleges, successfully cooperates with institutions of the III-IV levels of accreditation of Lviv region, and especially with the Lviv Trade and Economic University. Professor Petro Kutsyk, Rector of this University, spoke about this in his welcome address.

Performances of participants of amateur college and an ensemble of teachers “Galichanochka” delighted the guests of the holiday. The presentation of the young poets of the College was very successful. “Jagilka” bandura players’ vocal chapel performance (soloist –  Anastasia Nazar, student of the College) became a holiday decoration.

The best faculty and staff members have received awards from the Board of the Regional Consumer Union, the Presidency of the Regional Committee of the Consumer Cooperative Workers Union, and the College Directorate.
