Kiev Naval Political College

The college was established in January 1967[1] [21 January 1967] by the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. In 1948 to 1957 there existed Kyiv Naval Political School. The institution was located in the building that used to be a headquarters of the Soviet Dnieper Flotilla which in turn took it away from the Kiev Theological Academy.

In 1995 the college was closed and dissolved. Its building was transferred to the newly established National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy that claims to be a descendant of the Old Kyiv Mohyla Academy (1632-1817).

The mosaic with the college's symbol was preserved by the administration of new university. It contains two quotes of the Soviet Union and Communist leader, Vladimir Lenin: "Study, study, study..." and "Party is brains, honor and conscience of our epoch".
