Also at the request of Staszic, the Preparatory School for the Polytechnic Institute was established in Warsaw in 1825, which in 1827 achieved the status of a university.

One of the greatest achievements of Staszic is the Hrubieszów Agricultural Society, established in 1816. The Society had an area of ​​6,000 hectares and, apart from the town of Hrubieszów, there were several villages there. The statute of the Society abolished serfdom in these estates and gave the peasants the right of ownership of the land used, and shared ownership of forests, ponds, part of the arable land as well as mills, sawmills, brickyards, etc. The Society ran a loan fund, a hospital, organized schools, granted scholarships, etc. The Society was then one of the most mature pre-cooperative organizations in Europe.

He died on January 20, 1826, and his funeral took place on January 24, which was a great manifestation. His grave is located at the former monastery church of the Camaldolese Fathers in Bielany.

His thoughts deserve attention, including:

When Poles know how to value themselves at home, they will also value them abroad.

Man's first duty is to work.

Only through work does one become a useful citizen.

A talent is like a piece of noble but raw metal: only diligent work will work it out and give it great value.
