The prospect of the development of any newly established institution of higher education is quite rightly associated with the guarantee of the protection of the rights and interests of the student. That is why in 2004, on the basis of the International Humanitarian University, a nonprofit and apolitical youth organization was set up to serve the interests of thousands students of different levels.
Student trade union of the International Humanitarian University has always been famous for active and smart leaders. The first chairman of the student trade union organization was Candidate of Law, associate professor of the Department of International  and Comparative Law Konstantin Victorovich Gromovenko, who at the time of its establishment was  the first year student of the Institute of National and International Law in the specialty "International Law". Priority directions of the trade union activity from the very origins of the creation was to provide students with places of practice and employment, as well as leisure and recreation of youth. It was the activists of the student trade union committee that began the tradition of holding the annual beauty contest "Miss MGU".
With each passing year, the trade union organization acquired a powerful development. In 2015, the student of the Faculty of Linguistics and Translation Alisa Bryzhova occupied the post of chairman, who together with the union activist, began the tradition of holding New Year holidays for the children of the professorial teaching staff and employees of the International Humanitarian University.
Taking care of the scientific level of the students of the International Humanitarian University, the Student Union organizes meetings with the leading scientists on the basis of the university and takes an active part in the interpretation of the newly adopted Law of Ukraine "On Higher Education" and "On Education".
Currently, the Trade Union Organization is headed by Nazo Yulianna, a student of the Institute of Law, Economics and International Relations. One can not ignore the social projects that have been initiated within the Trade Union Organization. For the last 6 years, with this purpose, the trade union together with the students of the university have been conducting charity actions "Doing good". Within the framework of these actions, students share their joy and warmth with the inhabitants of the Kodima children's home "Buslik".
The Trade Union pays proper attention to student recreation and health. It has become a good tradition to spend winter holidays on a ski resort, and summer holidays in the recreation center"Academia" .
Today it is possible to say without doubt that in recent years the trade union has developed and intensified its activities. At each faculty, a trade union leader is elected. He or she works together with the group's trade union leader, allowing him or her to become more deeply involved in the scientific and social spheres of life at the level of individual specialties. This is very convenient and important, because it is necessary to have access to each student and in turn students should have possibility to know about the existence of such an organization as a student union and be able to receive support or assistance at any time.
