The State University of Management conducted monitoring of the existing KVN movement system in educational institutions of higher education in the Russian Federation.

The study allows us to understand the dynamics of the main trends in support of the KVN movement over the period of time that has passed since the signing of the cooperation agreement between the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation and the Television Creative Association “Alexander Maslyakov and Company”. It is AMiK that has been producing the KVN television program for many years, organizing games and possessing exclusive rights to the KVN trademark.

State University Rector Vladimir Stroev spoke about the importance of developing and supporting the creative community of students participating in KVN:

No one doubts the importance of the work that universities do in the field of youth policy and extracurricular activities. It is also obvious that any work must be carried out by a specialist – the dance group must be trained by a choreographer, and the choir must be trained by a vocalist. And no one taught the KVN players anything, as Yuliy Gusman said. For some reason, it’s the norm that cheerful and resourceful people are left to their own devices in most universities. Although KVN is a good tool to understand what worries young people now, what they talk about, what jokes they make. Well, plus KVN is also a cultural code that unites residents of the post-Soviet space.

SUM pays special attention to KVN: participants in television leagues work with students, various games are held, including with the participation of teams from other universities, and our teams go to play in the regions. In recent years, SMU has been regularly represented by various groups on Channel One. In this way, the guys help promote the university, and the university helps young talents develop creative skills – this is a pleasant symbiosis, and I believe it will be useful to all higher education institutions.

Over the past 2023, the total number of educational organizations with a specialist responsible for the KVN movement on their staff increased by 22 organizations compared to the previous period, which in percentage terms amounted to an increase of 10% in one year.

The number of various KVN tournaments and cups in universities increased by 19%. The vast majority of higher education organizations that held competitions for cheerful and resourceful people sent their teams to the International Festival of KVN teams in Sochi. Only seven such organizations did not participate in this event.

Of the total number of educational organizations that have a permanent employee involved in the development of the KVN movement (219), 61 organizations (28%) do not hold their own tournaments, and only 14 teams from these universities came to the festival in Sochi – 6% of the total number . While universities with permanent employees engaged in KVN are represented in Sochi by 47%. It follows from this that OOVOs with specialists more often play internal games and show themselves much better at the main KVN festival, where they are distributed among television leagues.

The largest number of university teams in the official leagues were represented by universities in the Central Federal District (58 or 39% of the total number of educational institutions in the district) and the Volga Federal District (35 units or 48% of the total number of educational institutions in the district). The worst situation is in the Far East, which can be explained by the remoteness of the region. At the same time, in terms of the average number of teams per educational institution, the Far Eastern Federal District is among the leaders, on a par with the Central Federal District (1.8 teams per university), but is inferior to the Ural Federal District with exactly two teams per university. Overall, the number of university teams participating in various official leagues across the country increased by 8.5%. Moreover, growth is observed in the overwhelming number of federal districts.

The general positive dynamics of the growth in the number of universities developing KVN and assigning permanent employees to this can be associated with a noticeably increased funding for KVN. The growth was 154% compared to 2022. At the same time, the lion’s share of all public associations involved in monitoring allocates up to 10,000 rubles per year for KVN, which is clearly not enough even for one game in the official league, not to mention television ones. 21% of all organizations receive from the budget from 100,000 to 1,000,000 rubles. Above this, there are only 12 universities throughout Russia.

Among the barriers to the development of KVN, interviewed representatives of OOOO, in addition to finances, name personnel and motivational obstacles, while most universities do not have any special problems with the material and technical base. Among requests for support, the financial component decreased by 9% and the request for personnel increased by 4%. Other indicators remained virtually unchanged.

Based on the results of monitoring over two years, we can conclude that the cooperation of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education with TTO “AMiK” brings extremely positive results. Funding and performance of creative teams are growing, and university management is coming to understand that for the comprehensive development of the KVN movement, it is necessary to resolve the personnel issue.

Let us recall that the State University of Education is the coordinator of the agreement between the Ministry of Education and Science and AMiK, and also actively promotes KVN not only as an area of extracurricular activities, but also as a school of leaders and an element of the creative economy.

In the summer of 2023, the First Scientific and Practical Conference “KVN – as a resource for the development of creative economy sectors in the regions” was held, and on January 22, the third All-Russian Forum “KVN – School of Leaders”, held as part of the 35th anniversary International Festival of KVN Teams “KiViN- 2024.”
