The “Vasile Goldiș” Western University of Arad was founded in 1990, with the aim of promoting the values of education, research and the relationship with society, under the sign of the academic community, capitalizing the institutional culture and perpetuating national and universal values. The “Vasile Goldiș” Western University of Arad provides education and research services in the field of scientific knowledge and her ideal is to use of academic values for the purpose of personal development, the individual’s professional insertion and to satisfy the need for competence of the socio- economic environment.

The initiative to establish the “Vasile Goldiș” Western University of Arad belonged to the late prof. Dr. AUREL ARDELEAN, PhD, founding rector of the “Vasile Goldiș” Western University of Arad and founding president of the “Vasile Goldiș” Arad University Foundation.

Why Vasile Goldis?

The university bears the name of the spiritual patron Vasile Goldiș, being one of the coryphaei and ideologue of the Great Union from December 1, 1918, who stated that “only cultural-educational institutions, in which the basic role is education, are meant to contribute to the affirmation of a people in a national democracy“.

Thus, the founding rector prof. AUREL ARDELEAN, PhD, was the one who “fulfilled the dream of the Arad people to have higher education” in the city, as Vasile Goldiș expressed his wish at the beginning of the last century, right in the Budapest Parliament.

The academic community of the “Vasile Goldiș” Western University of Arad undertakes to carry on the legacy left by the late founding rector, Prof. AUREL ARDELEAN, PhD, to the city and county of Arad, relying on excellence, flexibility and the quality of the educational act, as testified by the generations of graduates well inserted in the labor market.
