A long history and fine tradition:

Sun Yat-sen university is a name-brand institution of higher education with fine traditions in teaching and learning. In 1924, Dr. Sun Yat-sen, great leader of the 20th century, founded this university personally, and inscribed in his own handwriting the school motto of “Study extensively; Enquire accurately; Reflect carefully; Discriminate clearly; Practise earnestly.” The school was originally named Guangdong University, and later renamed Sun Yat-sen University in 1926. In the 1930s, there were seven schools in the University, which were the Schools of Arts, Sciences, Law, Engineering, Agricultural Studies, Medicine and Education. In 1935, the University set up the Graduate School and began to enroll graduate students. In the 1950s, the colleges, schools and departments were readjusted nationwide, and Sun Yat-sen University became a comprehensive university with the liberal arts and sciences as its backbone disciplines. Since the founding of the new China, Sun Yat-sen University has always been one of national key universities, and is also among the first batch of institutes to award Doctorate and Master degrees and to establish post-doctoral research flowing stations in our country. Approved by the State Council, the university was the first to set up graduate school in the South China area in the early 1990s, thus offering a complete range of degrees from the bachelor, master to doctorate.

The University has been unceasingly raising the quality of undergraduate education and has become an important base for training high-level talents. On the occasion of its 70th anniversary, President Jiang Zemin wrote the inscription of “Develop Dr. Sun Yat-sen’s revolutionary spirit, manage the University better and make greater contributions” which further points out the direction for running schools. In September 2000, the Zhuhai Campus of Sun Yat-sen University in Tang Jia Wan, Zhuhai city, was completed, which expands the space and lays a solid foundation for development in the new century. On October 26, 2001, Sun Yat-sen University and the Sun Yat-sen University of Medical Science were merged to form the new Sun Yat-sen University. The Ministry of Education and the government of Guangdong Province signed an agreement, both promising to INVEST 1.2 billion RMB in 3 years to build the new Sun Yat-sen University into a first class university with high academic standards.

One of the predecessors of the Sun Yat-sen University of Medical Science was the Bo Ji Medical School, which, founded in 1866, was the earliest institution of learning of western medicine in our country, where Dr.Sun Yat-sen once studied and engaged in revolutionary activities. The Bo Ji Medical School evolved into the College of Medicine of Lingnan University in 1936. In 1953, the Colleges of Medicine in Sun Yat-sen University and Lingnan University merged to form the College of Medicine of South China, which was joined by the Guangdong Guanghua College of Medicine in 1954. The university was renamed Guangzhou College of Medicine and Sun Yat-sen College of Medical Science successively, and finally Sun Yat-sen University of Medical Science in 1985, which has developed steadfastly into a comprehensive medical university with multi-schools and multiple levels, has reached national advanced level and achieved remarkable successes in scientific research in medical genetics, ophthalmology, tumor study, parasite study, the kidney disease of internal medicine, organ transplant, infectious liver disease, biological medical project and molecular medical science.

 Wenzhou was once a famous town of the Eastern Ou(the eastern part of the Oujiang River valley) with a brilliant cultural history. In 192 BC it was the capital of the Kingdom of the Eastern Ou and AD 323 it became Yongjia Prefecture. It was also called the City of White Deer, for, as legend has it, when the city was being built a white deer passed by it holding a flower in its mouth.

Wenzhou’s papermaking, shipbuilding, silk, embroidery, lacquerwork, as well as its shoes and leather products, achieved a fairly eminent position in the history of China. During the period of the Southern Song Dynasty, it was opened up as a foreign port, enjoying a reputation as p prosperous coastal city comparable to Hangzhou. Wenzhou is the hometown of Nanxi Opera or the Southern Opera. The Tale of the Pipa, written by the famous Wenzhou playwright Gao Ming in the mid-fourteenth century, has been translated into a number of foreign languages and achieved worldwide renown. Wenzhou has given birth to many outstanding prople and great scholars. Among the most famous were the philosophers of the Yongjia School as represented by Ye Shi, and the poets of the River and Lake School as represented by Yongjia’s four distinguished poets during the Southern Song Dynasty, as well as Sun Yirang, Xia Nai, Xia Chengtao, Su Buqing and others of the modern era, all of whom have exerted significant influence in the history of Chinese thought, literature and science.

An important element of this reform is the new “2+4+X” model for research universities; a model which emphasizes providing the students with a solid foundation of general knowledge, sound research skills and the ability to innovate. The goal is to transform the university from one which simply transmits knowledge to one which emphasizes active engagement in research. In 2006, XJTU took the lead among Chinese universities when it undertook to create a system of residential colleges modeled on the traditional Chinese academy of learning. This twin college system is aimed at giving our students the best possible chance for success. In 2007, XJTU established the “Qian Xuesen Experimental Class” for particularly gifted students and the “Zonglian Experimental Class”, whose purpose is to develop an appropriate classroom model for medical education. The university also set up its “engineering workshop” to stimulate students’ interests in science and technology and to encourage innovation and creativity, in keeping with the adage that “small inventions lead to big creations.” In 2010, the university first Experimental Class for Talents of Basic Subject was started. As one of only two universities in China with a “class for gifted young people,” XJTU has received praise from students and parents alike for its unique educational model, its favorable study environment, excellent teachers and substantial teaching resources, and its positive good teaching results. So far, the university has received 60 national teaching awards. In addition, it currently has 34 national elite courses, 8 national–level teaching centers, and 9 national-level teaching teams. To date, 26 XJTU dissertations have been recipients of the annual award given to “China’s 100 best doctoral dissertations”; another 40 have been nominated for that award.

Research in science and technology at XJTU is directed primarily at meeting the nation’s most important needs, forging into international frontiers, contributing to autonomous creation and accelerate industrial application. To this end, XJTU is continually strengthening its capacity to innovate while seeking to raise its level of competitiveness. Since 2000, faculty members and researchers from XJTU have headed 13 projects under the 973 Program. In the same period, university scientists and engineers have had 1,489 projects approved by the National Natural . Its total number of basic research projects and grants places XJTU in the front rank among Chinese universities. Since 2000, the university has been awarded 31 national science and technology prizes as the first author. To produce these results, the university relies on its strength in key disciplines and on its unique educational model, with its emphasis on the integration of production, study and research.

For more than 100 years, Shandong University has been following the mission of “Reserve talents for the world, and seek prosperity for the nation” and the motto of “Noble in spirit, endless in knowledge.” For this aim, it has cultivated over 400,000 talented young people of various specialties, and has been making significant contributions for the country and the regional economic and social development.

As one of the first universities finding its name on the list of Project 211 and Project 985, Shandong University has been developing by leaps and bounds in recent years, and each of its undertakings has reached unprecedented levels. The educational quality and competitiveness of the university have been remarkably improved. This improvement in the quality and capability of teaching has greatly increased both its international influence and its ability to serve the country and the local regions. The university has essentially accomplished its transformation from a teaching and research-oriented university to a research-oriented one.

Shandong University comprises 8 campuses (Jinan Central Campus, Hongjialou Campus, Baotuquan Campus, Qianfoshan Campus, Software Park Campus, Xinglongshan Campus, Qingdao Campus and Weihai Campus) in three different cities (Jinan, Qingdao and Weihai), covering an area of over 533 hectares (including 200 hectares of the Qingdao campus).

The university currently has 4 affiliated hospitals, 3 non-subordinate affiliated hospitals and 11 teaching hospitals. It also enjoys a teaching and administrative staff of 7,782 (not including affiliated hospitals). Its full-time student population totals up to 60,000, of which 41,103 are full-time undergraduates, 16,607 are postgraduates and 1,813 are international students. It also has an excellent faculty team of 1,107 professors, including 907 doctoral supervisors. Moreover, Professor Peter Grünberg, a German physicist and winner of the 2007 Nobel Prize in Physics, joined Shandong University as a special-term professor in 2012. Professor Mo Yan, a graduate supervisor from Shandong University, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in October 2012.

And now there are 8 academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences or the Academy of Engineering, 43 double-hired academicians, 11 tenured professors of Shandong University, 14 first grade professors in humanities and social sciences; 22 distinguished professors of National “1000-talents Plan”, 5 scholars of National “Young 1000 Talents Plan”; 7 faculty members are seated on the Discipline Appraisal Group of the State Council Academic Degree Committee, 26 become candidates of the “100-, 1000- and 10000-talent Plan”, 39 distinguished professors and part-time professors from the “Changjiang Scholars Program” of the Ministry of Education , 32 winners of the “National Outstanding Youth Foundation” award, 45 posts for distinguished professors and experts from the “Taishan Scholars” of Shandong Province and 9 “National Renowned Teachers”. Seven academic innovation teams found themselves in the Innovation Team Development Plan of the Ministry of Education, and another three academic innovation teams were chosen as the Innovative Research Groups of National Natural Science Foundation of China. Shandong University provides 2 national key first-level disciplines (including eight second-level disciplines), 14 national key second-level disciplines, 3 key national second-level disciplines under cultivation, and 70 provincial key disciplines, covering the 4 disciplinary fields of liberal arts, science, engineering and medicine. Such a comprehensive disciplinary system helps it to achieve coordinated development between different disciplines. The university has eight state scientific research platforms, including a key national laboratory, a state engineering technology research center, a state engineering laboratory and a state engineering technology promotion center. It also has 5 state “111 Innovation and Education Planning Projects,” 4 key social science research bases approved by the Ministry of Education, and a large number of provincial key laboratories and provincial engineering technology research centers.

Shandong University is one of the largest ranges of academic disciplines in China. There are at present 12 general disciplines for undergraduates and postgraduates, namely philosophy, economics, law, education, literature, history, science, engineering, agriculture, medicine, management, and fine arts. There are 40 first-level doctoral programs, 55 first-level master degree programs, 3 professional doctoral programs, 27 professional master degree programs, 118 programs for undergraduates, 38 mobile post-doctoral research stations, forming a complete system for cultivation of talent.

The growth of the university over the years has seen SDU rise to the forefront of many fields in China. In the 1930s and 1950s, when Shandong University was located in Qingdao, it was the home to many nationally famous scholars who paved the way for great success especially in the fields of literature and history.  Up to this day, Shandong University is well-known for its strong liberal arts programs, and published the highly reputable academic journal Literature, History & Philosophy. These two periods also laid a good foundation for the university in natural sciences, enabling it to find itself among the noted institutions in China. Since the merger at the end of the last century, the university’s newly-developed disciplines of FINANCIAL mathematics, crystal materials, condensed matter physics, colloid and surface chemistry, micro-biology, machinery, material science, cardiovascular functional recovery, new drug manufacturing, and classical Chinese philosophy have all risen to the first-class level within the country, and some are even known abroad.

With the opening of the National Educational Conference and the implementation of the “Education Planning Outline” in July, 2010, China’s higher education has yet another new opportunity for a historic leap, and all institutions of higher learning are standing at a new historic starting point. Facing the unprecedented opportunity, Shandong University has set a grand educational objective: initially becoming a world-class university by its 120th anniversary. At the new historical starting point, Shandong University will seize the opportunity, and adhere to the way of connotative development, quality promotion and feature building, to the strategy of institution existence by academia, strengthening by talents, prosperity by features, and management by law. Meanwhile, the university is to promote the internationalization of it, implement the Operation for Academic vitalization. With an already strong academic foundation and even more untapped potential, we are sure to achieve the goal of becoming  one of the world’s highest ranking universities.
