Vysokovsky Graduate School of Urbanism (GSU) is a learning and research division of the Faculty of Urban and Regional Development of the National Research University Higher School of Economics. Founded in 2011, the School takes a multidisciplinary approach towards studying and planning modern cities, using the excellent foundation that one of Russia’s top universities has formed in the humanities and socioeconomics. The School’s mission is to create a centre in Russia for learning and research in urban studies and urban planning. It is envisioned that this centre will respond to the needs of the 21st century city and the corresponding era of megacities that are home to tens of millions of people with diverse interests and aspirations. These are cities where sources of information grow and the space for civil, creative, and economic opportunities expands. From 2016 the School is officially named in honor of its first dean and one of the founders — Alexander Vysokovsky (1948-2014).

On September 6-7 2013, an exhibition of research projects from 2011-2013 called ‘The City’ took place in the ‘SahArt’ gallery. The first graduates of the Graduate School of Urban Studies and Planning presented their master’s degree projects, the culmination of two years’ work.
The themes of their theses concerned a wide range of urban problems, from legal urban regulation to the characteristics of the aural environment, and from citizens’ participation in urban management to migrant issues. ‘The first graduates of the master’s programme of the Graduate School of Urban Studies and Planning presented the results of their research projects which they had been working on for two years, and shared their future plans. Each theme is essential for the debate about Russian cities, and that’s why all graduates were invited to the exhibition’, explained Yuri Milevskiy, exhibition supervisor and GSUSP Research Fellow.
