In a highly interconnected and interactive world, LBUS could keep in the mainstream of academic events only by promoting international cooperation. After 1992, the year which marked the beginning of Dr. Ciocoi-Pop’s administration, LBUS adopted a policy of unprecedented academic contacts and links. It was the leadership’s strong conviction that, among the forty-eight state universities, eight military academies and forty-nine private universities of Post-Revolutionary Romania, LBUS could be successful only by interaction and cooperation.
