The role of University sports in education and society - A platform for change
Faculty of sports and physical education - Belgrade University
The Faculty of Sports and Physical Education of the University of Belgrade is a scientifically-educational institution, which is continuously, since 1946, educating high-level educated stuff for Physical Education teaching in schools, as well as for sports and recreation. Since the academic year 2004 there are founded the Department for Sports and the Department for Physical Education on the Faculty. The origin of the Faculty goes to 1938, when it was founded first one-year school for the education of the staff from our field, i.e. from 1939, when it was opened as a School for Physical Education in the range of the College.
From 1946 to 1953 we used to work as The State Institute for the Physical Culture (hence the popular name DIF, which exists even now), and after that, from 1953 to 1956 as The Institute for the Physical Culture, in the period from 1956 to 1963 as the High School for Physical Education. In the year 1963 we were incorporated into the University of Belgrade. From 1978 to 1988 we exist as The Faculty for the Physical Education; from 1988 to 2000 as the Faculty of the Physical Culture and in the year 2000 we changed the name into the present one - Faculty of Sports and Physical Education. Naturally, the name changes have been the consequence of the significant reforms of the course of study, with the aim of as appropriate education of the stuff as possible.
Beside the basic activity, within the Stuff Centre of the Faculty there are trainings of the stuff for the lower coach ranks in the sports and recreation, in the contexts of the permanent education and skills improvement.
Methodical-Research Laboratory of the Faculty is gathering the material and the technical means, as well as the expert potentials of the Faculty, for the realization of the part of the lectures, expert and scientific development of the Faculty, as well as the collaboration with the sports associations and the clubs. The Laboratory is organized in such a way to enable the realization of the projects in the field of the computational-informational, mobility-biomechanical and medical-biological sector.
The Faculty's library provides the students with all the necessary literature for the exams, reading-room and great number of books and magazines (altogether 24,462 publications) from the field of physical culture.
In the premises of the library it is enabled for the students to access via internet all the expert, scientific and other information needed.
The Faculty publishes the journal ‘Physical Culture', the oldest organ from our field, which is being published for 61 years.
Close to the Faculty there are student dormitories, for which (like for the other ones on the territory of Belgrade) students of the Faculty can apply. Application term for the next academic year is in September. The condition for the grant of the student dormitory accommodation is successful studying and modest material resources of a student.

“An alternative university project would be to integrate a multicultural and participatory approach in academic programs”
The Universiade is not only a multi-sport event but also an educational event which gives student-athletes and officials of delegations the opportunity to take part in an international academic conference supervised byFISUand hosted by the university of the city hosting the Games. The Conference is also very important for FISU because it builds up a very close relation between the university hosting the Conference and FISU.
Established in 1983, the Universityof Shenzhen hosted the Conference from August 13th to 16th. The organizers had collected no less than 830 abstracts, of which 400 were selected. More than 350 participants coming from 43 countries attended the event.
The presence of Ms. Yan Xiaopei, Vice-Mayor of the Shenzhen Municipal Government, at the Opening Ceremony of the Conference showed the importance given by the highest local authorities to this educational event. She gave a speech on the development of the city of Shenzhen and emphasized on how a major sporting event is the catalyst for driving in social and economic improvements for a city and its region. She also focused on the involvement of more than 1.2 million volunteers that had been prepared and trained by local leaders in order to support the organization of the Universiade.
The importance of combining sport and academic events was underlined by Mr. Claude-Louis Gallien, FISU President and Chair of the Committee for the Study of University Sports (CESU) in charge of educational activities in FISU:“... sport might play a major role in education; university sport must be a school for tomorrow’s decision-makers”.
"University Sport: From Culture of the "How" to Culture of the "Why". The Future Starts Here”.
"It is a great pleasure and an honor for FISU to be once again here in China, the land where successful answers are given to the challenges of coupling modernity with rich and original traditions to achieve holistic technological, economical and social development.
Shenzhen is a «green» city, a young city with a young population, a city open to the world, a city facing toward the future. In fact, «The future starts here» in Shenzhen, and the 2011 FISU Summer Universiade Conference intends to be a milestone in that process.
French writer André Malraux said: “The 21st century will be spiritual or will not be”.
In fact, making ethics and value systems endogenous to the decision systems is an urgent necessity for world stability, sustainability, wealth and peace.
An imperative condition for our societies to meet the expectations of future is to develop higher education projects that promote global consciousness and accountability among the students, who will be tomorrow’s decision makers.
The traditional university model, based on the partitioning of disciplines, focusing on technology and economy and promoting unified “global cultural criteria” as universal values, with little reference to the rich cultural diversity of humanity, has failed.
An alternative university project would be to integrate a multicultural and participatory approach in academic programs, with a continuing obligation of excellence in every way (excellence in mind and body). Combining sciences, cultures, arts and sports in university programs conveying ethical values would promote and foster a spirit of curiosity, originality and transversality, and make the students more active by arousing their questioning.
The affirmation ofAsiaon the international scene, with its five thousand years of history, highlights a worldview that is not that of the « global thought », but that of the cultural diversity. The integration of Asian thought (non dual, impermanent, cyclic, morphologic) and Occidental thought (dual, permanent, linear, teleological) can be fertile, as well as teaching the “how?” can be coordinated with teaching of the “why?”.
The 2011 FISU Summer Universiade Conference intends to be the starting point for a new educational concept linking:
The Shenzhen University, our host for this Conference, is in the best position to play the winning cards of transdisciplinarity, ethics, culture and sport to initiate a revolution in higher education at world level."
