In the article analyzes the actual problem of psychological influence, which opens perspectives for a new type of social interaction of subjects of higher education in the context of creating a safe educational environment.

The main characteristic of the world is movement, change, development, and the main content of life and the fundamental means of human existence is its development, which is fully and intensively observed in the student’s age. Student development as a social and personal phenomenon is carried out primarily in education, therefore the main social and individual life of a young person is concentrated in the field of education. A socially important task for educators is to provide for the development of such an educational space, in which a person from an early age would be aware of his social significance and through the system of value attitudes acquired experience of interaction with society.

Educational institution, as John Dewey argued, fulfilling the social order of the society, “can create in the project a type of society that we would like to have”. Individual personality is one of the basic psychological resources that underlies self-sufficient, initiative and productive life. The world in which a person lives, becomes complex and controversial. In order to develop a reasonable strategy of our own lives in this world, one must have a high intellectual and creative potential, high professionalism, therefore one of the most important tasks of higher education is the personal and professional development of students.

The need for a comprehensive development of the younger generation is due to the social need for new types of thinking and new ways of transforming reality. An authoritarian high school, which until recently was dominant, envisaged the fulfillment of a social order for a certain type of person. Unfortunately, even today, the traditional high school continues to be oriented towards the society, purposefully forming the personality necessary for the state, professional specialist, who meets the social order, has the necessary political orientation, is loyal. This does not mean that this model totally ignores the individual needs and needs of students, but they are encouraged and satisfied only when they are in the interest of the state.

Key words: competence, civic competence, educational environment, innovations, innovation, personality.
