In Soviet period, inspite of a wide spread of higher education, higher educational institutions (so-called VUZ) were developed, but not Universities. This form of organization actually reproduced the industrial approaches in the field of higher education. The universities were analogues of factories and plants, a special type of educational “conveyor”. The planned character of the country's economy required a special approach in the sphere of higher education. At the same time, despite of total unification and standartization, University traditions were saved and developed in many organizations. After the collapse of the USSR and the collapse of the state planned economy model in 1991, higher education institutions and higher education began to experience a difficult path of evolution and transformation into universities. The experience of modern Russia gives a unique material to specialists dealing not only with the history of heraldry, but also with the history of social thought, the history of science and education, the history of marketing etc. The author tries to analyze the main tendencies that took place in the last 25 years on the example of the “heraldic” history of the State Academic University for the Humanities (GAUGN) and its closest partners.
