The value of an Education received in such a setting brings benefits to an individual and to the society and creates an opportunity for success. This kind of scholarly advancement at Ilia State University directly translates into the development and growth of the nation.
The unique institutional capacity of ISU is reflected first in the quality of academic staff and the research conducted in the areas relative to Georgia’s geopolitical standing and social, political and cultural development; and second in its distinctive ability to initiate an open, unbiased public policy discussion.

Achieving and maintaining competitiveness in the research field is extremely important for our university and with major research conducted at Ilia State, Georgia is increasingly gaining international recognition. To reach this goal, ISU allocates a large percentage of its annual budget for research.
