Academic Hromada (Lviv)

Academic Hromada (Lviv) (Akademichna hromada). A student organization in Lviv (1896–1921), formed from the union of the Academic Brotherhood and the Vatra societies. Its groups and scientific sections were well developed; its organ was Moloda Ukraïna. Its activity ceased for some time following the secession of Ukrainian students from Lviv University in 1901–2. Beginning in 1908 the Academic Hromada society conducted large-scale educational activity among peasants and townspeople (giving lectures, courses, and assistance to reading rooms, and publishing a book series, ‘Desheva biblioteka’). It was disbanded by the Polish authorities in connection with their reprisals against the Lviv (Underground) Ukrainian University.
