1989-1994 and 1996-2001
The first Rector of Kostanay State University named after A.Baitursynov

Aldamzhar Z.A. - Doctor of Historical Sciences, Professor, Honorary Citizen of Kostanay, Honorary Citizen of the State of Texas (USA), Chairman of the Council of Rectors of Universities in the northern region of Kazakhstan, headed the University during a number of significant events, making his own contribution to the adoption of fateful decisions (1989-1994). - 1996-2001).
Being a large-scale and multifaceted Personality, an outstanding leader, a charismatic Leader, a true Patriot, he became a pioneer in many ways and left a bright mark in the history of the University, the region, in the system of higher education and science of independent Kazakhstan.

At the dawn of a new era, the transition to market relations began, the creation of our own model of the political system and the social sphere led to a demand for qualified personnel of a qualitatively different level, which required a qualitative change in the higher education system with an emphasis on expanding and strengthening the status of universities.

Almost throughout the 90s, many social aspects of the life of Kostanay remained on the verge of decline. Such necessary areas as education, health care, culture, experienced significant difficulties in filling qualified personnel.

The issue of establishing a university in the northern region was considered repeatedly by the Ministry of Education and Science. The historical role in its decision belongs to the head of the Kostanay regional administration Ukin Kenzhebek Ukinovich, as he filed a petition from the public and the executive power of the region to the President, which was approved.

Particularly significant is the position of the Minister of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan Shayakhmetov Sh., who took personal initiative in opening a state university in Kostanay.

On August 6, 1992, one of the largest fateful decisions was made - in accordance with the Decree of the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Kazakhstan, Kustanai State University was established on the basis of the Pedagogical Institute.

In this difficult time of formation, the university was managed by a talented leader who had a global strategic vision and had exceptional organizational skills.

At the solemn meeting of the staff, the first rector said that the change in the status of the educational institution is a huge gift, first of all, to the residents of the Kostanay region, its younger generation. Now, in order to get the specialty of a lawyer, journalist, economist, philologist and others, our children do not need to break away from their parents and travel to Almaty, Karaganda, Tselinograd or other cities. Education will be available in Kustanai. And it will be no less qualified.

To develop new curricula and programs, the plans and programs of Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazakh, Omsk, Karaganda, Ural and many other universities were studied, the experience of higher education in England, Germany, Portugal, and Poland was studied.

Aldamzhar Z.A. launched a large-scale creative activity, so new faculties were formed: mathematics, physics and technology, Kazakh philology, psychology, law. In general, the number of faculties was increased to 11, which included 50 departments.

He invested his knowledge, experience, strength, a piece of his soul so that in 1993 the University tested a two-stage system of personnel training at the Faculty of History in the bachelor's-master's system.

The unique human and business qualities, the great authority in the academic and professional community of the widely erudite and intelligent scientist-historian, prominent statesman and public figure Aldamzhar Zulkharnaya Aldamzharovich played their role.

He paid special attention to the development of youth patriotism, a reverent attitude to national culture, therefore, during his leadership, for the first time, enrollment of students for training in the Kazakh language began on an ongoing basis.

A special corporate atmosphere was formed at the university, unique opportunities were created to unlock the potential of students, the horizons of cooperation were formed and expanded, the authority of the university in the region, country and in the international arena steadily increased.

During the period of rectorship of Aldamzhar Z.A. Another event took place - the branding of the university based on the appeal to the historical past and the perpetuation of the name of prominent figures.

On April 3, 1996, the Decree of the Government of Kazakhstan No. 384 was issued on conferring the name of Akhmet Baitursynov on Kostanay State University. On September 25, 1998, as part of the events dedicated to the 125th anniversary of the great Kazakh figure, the Akhmet Baitursynov Museum was opened. On September 15, 2000, a monument to A. Baitursynov was opened on the square in front of the university.

On November 17, 1998, the university staff met the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan N.A. Nazarbayev, who participated in the first international intervideoconference with the University of Oklahoma (USA). Over 2,000 students from 5 universities of the Kostanay region became speakers and listeners of the unique interactive forum

Chuzhinov Petr Iosifovich
Chuzhinov Petr Iosifovich
First Rector of Kostanay Agricultural Institute

In August 1978 Chuzhinov P.I. was appointed rector of the newly organized Kostanay Agricultural Institute.

He entered the history of the agrarian region as the first head of a strategically important university for training agricultural personnel during the periods of the 9-11th five-year plans of the planned economy, and then perestroika and glasnost, the collapse of a single state and gaining independence by the Republic of Kazakhstan.

In the 1970s, socio-economic development was characterized by the fact that the leaders were the teams of the chemical fiber plant, the Bolshevichka factory, the North Kazakhstan Territorial Geological Administration, industrial auto trusts and enterprises. Within the framework of socialist competition, the production of more than five hundred new types of products was mastered. The share of light industry products was 55%.

Transport, communication and consumer services developed at an accelerated pace. Thousands of envoys from Kustanay worked shoulder to shoulder with rural machine operators in the fields, currents and grain-receiving points.

Increased attention was paid to improving the forms of participation of the young, scientific, engineering and technical intelligentsia in accelerating scientific and technological progress, improving professional training.

On the initiative of the Kustanai Regional Committee of the Party, since 1966, a branch of the Tselinograd Agricultural Institute has been operating in Kustanai. Its first and last director was Anatoly Aleksandrovich Obraz, a graduate of the Kazan Agricultural Institute named after M. Gorky. Under his leadership, an educational and material base was created for an independent institute, which opened in 1978.

Chuzhinov P.I., who headed the Institute from childhood he was a purposeful, ideological person, with an active life position and the makings of a leader.

The basis for the formation and professional development was the entry and activity in the Komsomol organization of the party, participation in the Great Patriotic War, study at the Azov-Black Sea Institute of Mechanization and Electrification, at the higher party school under the Central Committee of the CPSU (Moscow).

We note in particular that he fought on the Leningrad, 1st Belorussian fronts, commanded a platoon as part of artillery troops, was awarded the Order of the Patriotic War, medals: "For Courage", "For the Defense of Leningrad", "For Victory over Germany".

By the time of his appointment as rector Chuzhinov P.I. established himself as a qualified, experienced, effective manager. In 1964, after graduating from the highest party school, he was sent to the main granary of the country as the chairman of the Kustanai regional association "Tselinselkhoztechnika", in 1970 he was elected to the post of director of the Tselinny Research Institute of Mechanization and Electrification of Agriculture. His name is associated with the creation of a material and technical base and the formation of a highly qualified scientific and pedagogical team, which was rightly reflected in the Book of Labor Glory of the Institute.

Chuzhinov P.I. thanks to outstanding human, professional and business qualities, he brought KSHI to an unprecedented high level of development.

In the "Era of Chuzhinov - the era of creation, rapid development and prosperity", one of the best material and technical bases among the research institutes of the Soviet Union was formed: buildings for engineering, technical, agricultural specialties, a machine yard were erected, a unique set of equipment and instruments for collecting, storing and processing information, since 1980, work began on completing the computer equipment fleet with modern computers.

A pronounced social policy and concern for the staff consisted in the fact that 2 nine-story dormitories for 1400 people, 2 residential buildings for 190 apartments for teachers were built.

The only forge of highly qualified specialists for the agro-industrial complex of the region provided training at the newly created 5 faculties, in which 11 doctors of science, 34 candidates of science and associate professors taught at 32 departments. The student contingent exceeded 4 thousand people, and in 1980 the first graduation took place in the specialty "Economics and organization of agricultural production" in the amount of 52 people.

It is natural that the Institute under the leadership of Chuzhinov P.I. held a leading position in the field of development and research in the field of agriculture, not only in our region, but also in neighboring areas.

The hallmark will be an advanced system of organization, operational management and planning, cooperation with leading universities and scientific institutions of near and far abroad.

The first rector, despite the heavy workload, skillfully combined administrative work with scientific and pedagogical work, supervising candidate dissertations, as well as preparing and publishing textbooks, manuals, monographs, and scientific articles.

Being a Teacher and a Scientist by vocation, he devoted his entire adult life to serving education and science, and after leaving the post of rector, he successfully defended his doctoral dissertation in economic sciences in 1999.

In the history of the university, region and country, the first rector of KSHI Chuzhinov P.I. left a bright mark as a large-scale, multifaceted, charismatic Personality, a talented leader, organizer, prominent scientist and founder of a scientific school, who brought up a whole galaxy of successful leaders, scientific and pedagogical workers, specialists for various fields of the economy.


Gazizov Kavyj Gazizovich
Gazizov Kavyj Gazizovich
The first rector of the Kostanay Pedagogical Institute

1961 for the first time introduced the position of rector. They became Gazizov Kavy Gazizovich, who headed the university in 1959. Then he was the appointed director.
By the sixties of the last century, Kustanai had strengthened its reputation as the capital of the largest virgin region in the country. Huge resources invested in the virgin lands gave a multiplier effect in the form of an unprecedented growth of state farms and their production capacities, but also radically transformed the regional center, which previously represented a “large unkempt village”.

As local historians note, this was the time of a rather steep rise in the country's economy (Seven Year Plan: 1959-1965), the time of Khrushchev's "thaw" and euphoria.

The seven-year plan gave rise to the construction of a suit fabrics factory, a meat processing plant, an auto repair plant, an expansion of the production capacities of existing enterprises, and an increase in the pace of construction of social facilities.

The country was rightly proud of many achievements, in particular, unparalleled space flights, the use of the atom for peaceful purposes, its gigantic factories, hydroelectric power stations.

In these historical conditions, an ordinary teacher of the Kirov University Gazizov K.G., having arrived in our region, revealed his potential in the newly introduced post of rector of the Kostanay Pedagogical Institute.

A talented scientist, teacher and leader managed to successfully defend a dissertation in historical sciences, being fluent in German, repeatedly travel to the GDR to work in the archives of K. Liebknecht and R. Luxemburg as part of a doctoral dissertation research.

His lectures and seminars on the recent history of Europe and America were rich in factual material, innovative, highly scientific, instilling in students the skills of global thinking, competent presentation of material, and reasoned polemics.

A man of high culture, an intellectual, an erudite, a teacher and a leader by vocation, left a bright mark in the history of the university and in the memory of people. He combined intelligence, goodwill, decency, rigor and adherence to principles. However, perhaps one of the key properties was charm, charisma, the ability to win over and even attract to oneself, the absence of bureaucratic swagger. From the memoirs of students, graduates, teachers, one can find the following "class specialist", "idolized simply as a lecturer", "idol".

It was during his period of leadership of the Pedagogical Institute that the “long-term construction” was completed - the construction of a new building and not only.

Large construction organizations, as well as with the participation of student construction teams, erected an educational building, a gym, hostels, a sports camp, greenhouses of 300 square meters. m., film studios.

Over 4 thousand students studied at 6 faculties: historical and philological, physical and mathematical; methods of primary education; biology and basics of agriculture; foreign languages, in 9 specialties: Russian language, literature and history; physics and mathematics; physics and OTD; elementary school teacher; biology; Russian language and literature (evening department); history (evening department); mathematics (evening department); elementary school teacher (evening department). In addition, there was a working faculty (rabfak) to prepare applicants for admission (subsequently, preparatory courses).

In order to match the external appearance of the university, a whole program of designing classrooms, corridors, lobbies, halls, stairways was developed, based on a single concept that reflects various aspects of the socio-political, educational and methodological activities of faculties and departments.

As a result of competent management of the First Rector Gazizov K.G. over the period from 1959 to 1971, the Pedagogical Institute rightfully became the most important center of culture and science, as well as the scientific and methodological center of the entire region, producing highly qualified personnel.

Terentyev Stepan Pavlovich
Terentyev Stepan Pavlovich
The first director of the Pedagogical Institute

On July 26, 1955, an order was issued by the Ministry of Education of the Kazakh SSR on the reorganization of the Kustanai Teachers' Institute into a Pedagogical Institute.

From September 1, Terentiev Stepan Pavlovich, who since 1950 led this university in the previous organizational and legal form, becomes the first director of the pedagogical institute "the main granary of the republic".

Local historians note that the topic of virgin lands for our city and region is perhaps the key one in the history of the second half of the 20th century. It was during this period that the main guidelines for the future economic and socio-cultural development of the entire region were determined.

In the period from 1954 to 1956, more than 150 thousand new settlers of about 40 nationalities came to the Kostanay region. The country and the region gradually got out of the "demographic hole" associated with the consequences of the war years. Historians figuratively noticed that the former deaf steppe resounded with the roar of construction, the noise of tractors, the whistles of steam locomotives.

The first director of the Kostanay Pedagogical Institute, thanks to his vast experience in the field of education, initiative, innovative approach, did a lot to transition the university to new curricula, solve a set of problems associated with a lack of classroom fund, apartments for teachers and staff, lack of a student hostel.

His biography testifies to the presence of purposefulness, strong-willed character and selflessness in serving his beloved cause.

He comes from a peasant family, having a 2-class school behind him, enters the Orenburg Teachers' Seminary, after graduating from the Alma-Ata Pedagogical Institute, works as a physics teacher, school director, inspector of the GorONO, director of the teacher's institute in Petropavlovsk.

Terentiev S.P. successfully coped with the task of switching to new curricula, creating deans of the historical-philological and physics-mathematical faculties, building up human resources and improving the qualifications and degrees of teaching staff, implementing the first enrollment (301 students, including 258 girls).

During his leadership, certain results were analyzed in connection with the 15th anniversary of the Institute: 1800 teachers of Russian language and literature, history, physics and mathematics, natural science and geography were graduated for Kostanay, Akmola, Aktobe, East Kazakhstan regions.

The demand for the university was obvious, but with particular acuteness a key problem arose - the non-compliance with the requirements of the building of the Institute.

In December 1951, work began on the construction of a new building of the Institute on Tarana Street, but the process turned into a long-term construction, which was completed only in 1959.

In 1957, during the inspection of the Ministry of Education of the Kazakh SSR, the question of closing the institute was even raised.

The first director managed to defend the institute, although the construction of the building during his leadership, due to circumstances beyond his control, was still not completed.

S.P. Terentyev completed his pedagogical and labor activity as a senior lecturer in the Department of Physics of the Kustanai Pedagogical Institute, having retired in 1962.

As professional historians note, local historians at that time "the pedagogical institute became the main educational center of the city and the entire region."

Naydenov Ivan Panteleimonovich
Naydenov Ivan Panteleimonovich
1939-1941 and 1947-1959
The first director of the Teachers' Institute

On July 29, 1936, the Kustanai region was formed, in 1937 the Constitution of the Kazakh SSR was adopted, ambitious plans for the second shock five-year plan were put forward. In Kustanai, its grandiose construction began, the city grew by leaps and bounds, the status of the regional center obliged. Emphasis was placed on educating the people and organizing cultural activities.

The rapid development of public education and the growing need for teaching staff. By 1939, there were 708 vacancies in the schools of the region. Two dozen young specialists arrived from among the graduates of Leningrad, Moscow and Almaty universities. It wasn't enough.

Under these conditions, there naturally arose a need to create a university for the training of teaching staff.

In the pre-war period, the famous thesis “Cadres decide everything” was not a simple tribute to party fashion, it was the most stringent instruction for all authorities.

Naydenov Ivan Panteleimonovich, by decision of the country's leadership, was sent from the capital of the republic to the region to solve a set of tasks for the formation of the Teachers' Institute.

He was the first appointed director of the Kustanai Teachers' Institute (order of the People's Commissariat of Education dated October 1, 1939).

By that time, he was a well-known teacher, poet, member of the Writers' Union of the Kazakh SSR, behind whom was the experience of leading work in the field of culture as the director of the United Opera House in Almaty.

Naydenov I.P. I had to quickly master the educational, methodological and scientific fields of activity that were unfamiliar to him, invest a lot of effort and energy in the formation of human resources, strengthening the material and technical base, enrolling students in the physics and mathematics, natural and geographical departments, as well as in one-year German language courses .

A certain groundwork was created by the first acting director of the Teachers' Institute, Ibrayev Daulet, who devoted his whole life to the education system: he was a teacher at boarding school No. 1, director of Kazakh secondary school No. 22, and deputy head of the Kustanai oblONO. For many years of work he was awarded the titles of "Excellent worker of public education of the Kazakh SSR", "Honored teacher of the school of the Kazakh SSR".

Nevertheless, on the shoulders of Naydenova I.P. a difficult fate fell: to create all the conditions from scratch, while periodically being subjected to verification, harsh criticism from the management, receiving penalties.

In the 1940-1941 academic year, the number of teachers doubled, the pride of the team was the first graduation of teachers. I had a chance to take final exams in the first days of the beginning of the Great Patriotic War.

The Institute, having worked for two years in the pre-war period, becomes an educational institution that played an important role in the training of teachers, the development of science, education and culture in the region. It is turning into a center of socio-political work to form a new person, an intellectual and teacher of the young republic. Such a fair assessment can be found in the essays on the history of the Institute.

This success was achieved thanks to the outstanding organizational skills, strong-willed character, and great work capacity of the first appointed director, Ivan Panteleymenovich Naydenov. Not without reason, in the post-war period, he will again be entrusted to head the Institute again.

With his characteristic vigor, but already having serious managerial experience in the field of education, he did a lot to strengthen and develop the Teachers' Institute, which became his home, in the conditions of the restoration of the national economy in the pre-war period.

Thanks to Naydenov I.P. in 1949, a separate building was allocated at 33 Pushkin Street, the material base included 2 educational buildings and 2 dormitories (male, female), the Institute trained in 7 specialties, the personnel potential was strengthened by talented graduates of the country's leading universities, PhDs - teachers by vocation. The Institute reimbursed students' living expenses.

As a natural result - the annual positive dynamics of graduation of students: 83 (1947), 107 (1948), 117 (1949). For reference: 1941-1949 a total of 690 people were released.

A new task that he did not have time to complete is the implementation of the government decree on the transition to a 7-year education.

Naydenov I.P. volunteered for the front, for his fighting qualities he was awarded the Order of the Patriotic War II degree, the Order of the Red Star, the medal "For Military Merit".

As a man who went through the war, he was, like many of his contemporaries, straightforward in actions and judgments, persistent in achieving his goals.

May 15, 1950 Naydenov I.P. was removed from the post of director and left as a senior teacher, in June 1951 from the party ranks, on August 23, 1951 he was dismissed from the institute.

The true motives remained unknown, and the official version of the manifestation of "hooliganism" (used in documents and other dismissed teachers) of a participant in the Great Patriotic War, awarded two orders and four medals, is untenable.

Despite the drama, with the name Naidenov I.P. connected with the formation of the teacher's institute in the pre-war years, then the revival in the difficult post-war years.

Having steadfastly overcome all the hardships and trials, he remained in the history of the Teachers' Institute as the first director and a strong leader.
