Results We identified factors boosting the socio-cultural potential of a city, i.e. qualities of human resources, interaction of individuals in the society, society and individual (a group), public awareness of socio-cultural phenomena, development of the socio-cultural milieu, social infrastructure. Considering the said factors, we examined the role of the academic environment in boosting the socio-cultural potential of a city, referring to the city of Tomsk as a case in point. We conducted the correlation and regression analysis that describes the socio-cultural potential of Tomsk.
