This article focuses on a fundamental issue in the context of education and research development – the master – student relationship. Referring to the centuries-old tradition of academic institutions, the essence and significance of these relations were presented, indicating the desirable features of the master as a person shaping the attitudes of his students desired for social reasons. As an example of such master in the field of quality sciences, the figure of the late Professor Romuald Kolman and the memories of some of
his pupils were presented. Referring to the current situation in the system of higher education and science in Poland, the authors would like to draw attention to the fact that, in their opinion, support for this sphere of academic activity is definitely insufficient and even neglected in various regulations.
