Short history
On 19 January 1991, on the initiative of Professor Aurelian Gh. Bondrea, PhD., came into being the FUNDAŢIA ROMÂNIA DE MÂINE (ROMÂNIA DE MÂINE Foundation) – an autonomous institution of culture, science and education, having no political or patrimony purposes (non-profit) – and whose president was elected by the Constitutive General Assembly of the founding members.
The Court of Law of District 1, Bucharest, admitted under Decree in Civil Matters 109 on12 February 1991 the application for registration filed by the ROMÂNIA DE MÂINE Foundation at the Registrar of Companies and Foundations, thus becoming a legal person of private law.
According to Romania de Maine Foundation by laws (art.7), approved by the Constitutive General Assembly, the intended purpose and objectives are to be achieved by its relevant institutions, which provide and develop, within legal limits, activities in the line of education, science and culture. Having as a model the Harvard Foundation and University, Professor Aurelian Gh. Bondrea, PhD, the President of the Romania de Maine Foundation, has initiated, organized and coordinated Spiru Haret University, in the spirit of Spiru Haret, the great scholar, reformer and founder of the modern education system in Romania.
The Act no. 443 dated July 5, 2002 and published in the Official Gazette of Romania no. 491 on July 9, 2002, ratified the fact that Spiru Haret University, upon accreditation, is a ‘higher education institution, a legal person of private law and public utility, a part of the national system of education’.
Spiru Haret University has adopted the ideals and principles set forth by the Magna Charta Universitatum, ratified in Bologna in 1988, advocating for the transposition, in higher education and scientific research, of the regulations, standards and values voted during the Bologna Process.  The University President and Rector signed the Magna Charta Universitatum in Bologna in 2005 and pledged, in the name of University, to observe and promote the academic autonomy, the fundamental university values and rights, to effectively react to the challenges entailed by the transition to the knowledge-based society, by the globalization process
The efforts constantly made by Spiru Haret University in order to secure its integration into the national and European area of scientific research have been steered to building its own strategy of research-development.  All of these clearly mirror the present circumstances and define the set of strategic and specific goals of the research-development area, of designing the research-development plan and setting the instruments that are required for its achievement.
The University has always carried out various activities to promote its image, to make its performance more visible. The list of such activities includes, but it is not limited to, participation in important national and international events, establishing partnerships, agreements, relations of cooperation in various areas.  The above-described brilliantly prove the wide openness of Spiru Haret University to the world, its desire to cooperate at various levels, in the European and international sphere of education and research.  Likewise, it represents the expression of the prestige already acquired by our institution, an indisputable proof of its mission of promoting the values of Romanian education, science and culture worldwide.
