NANJING UNIVERSITY

Nanjing University, one of China's key comprehensive universities under the direct supervision of the Ministry of Education, dates from 1902 when it was known as Sanjiang Normal School.

NJU has made remarkable achievements in student education. Its current student body totals around 43,477 (12,655 undergraduates, 11,030 graduates). NJU students have been demonstrating their cutting-edge competitiveness in various competitions inside and outside of China.

In 1994 and 1995, the NJU debating team won the championship in both the national and international debating contests; in 1996 and 2005, two championships were won in the International English Speech Contest in Britain. Students, when graduating from NJU, enjoy a wide popularity in the job market for their solid academic foundations and strong potentials for future development.

In academics, NJU graduates have also achieved great success. So far, seven alumni were granted the US President's Award, and some scientific findings were named after the individuals who once studied or worked at NJU. In 1999, NJU was the first comprehensive university whose undergraduate education was appraised by the Ministry of Education.

In the new century, NJU will deepen its reforms while carrying on its traditions. Aiming at excellence and innovativeness, it is headed for a world-class comprehensive research university with a global vision, and thus it will play a more prominent role in China's rise in the 21st century.

MOTTO OF THE UNIVERSITY

Over the past century, Nanjing University has been through many vicissitudes and experienced repeated changes in its name and location, but its traditional spirit of honesty, perseverance, self-reliance and unremitting pursuit of truth and creativity has been passed on from generation to generation and will be carried forward into the future. It is such fine tradition and spirit that allow the university to establish itself in the growth of the Chinese and world civilization, enrich its cultural heritage and nurture honest, persistent and self-reliant students. Since its establishment over a hundred years ago, Nanjing University has maintained its youthful vigor and made progress in various undertakings. It has made remarkable achievements in areas such as talent training, scientific research, social work and academic exchanges and has made indelible contributions to China's scientific, cultural and educational undertakings.

“Sincerity” is the most original part of the traditional spirit of Nanjing University. It means honesty, earnestness and simpleness, with honesty being the core and root. Learning with sincerity means seeking truth from facts and being rigorous and diligent in pursuing truth. Only in this way can we make true achievement in learning and shoulder the responsibility of rejuvenating the Chinese nation. 

“Aspiration” asks for grandeur and greatness. It urges us to be ambitious in “doing big things” and to foster the spirit of fearlessness. Both we teachers and students should have a sense of responsibility and a sense of calling so that we can link our own goals with the needs of the development of our country and the progress of human civilization.

While “Sincerity with Aspiration” reflects the educational philosophy and objectives of the university, “Perseverance with Integrity” lay stress on the approach to achieving these objectives. These two words encourage us teachers and students to work hard and practice with our hands. We should not only have great ambitions but also put to practice what we have found to be true. Only through down-to-earth practice can we fulfill ourselves and show to others what we know and who we are. 

HISTORY

Situated in the old capital city of Nanjing, Nanjing University (NJU) has a one-hundred-year-long history and enjoys high prestige. It evolved from Sanjiang Normal School (established in 1902), to Liangjiang Normal School, to Nanjing Higher Normal School, to National Southeastern University, to National Fourth Sun Yat-sen University, to National Central University, to National Nanjing University, and finally to Nanjing University in 1950. In the nationwide restructuring of universities and colleges undertaken in 1952, NJU was integrated with Jinling University and retained its name Nanjing University. The university then moved from Sipailou to Gulou, where Jinling College used to be.  

STUDENTS AND FACULTY

At present, NJU has three campuses: Xianlin Campus, Gulou Campus and Pukou Campus. With 28 schools under the university’s direct supervision, the number of the students in 2016 is 32,999 in total, including 13,583 undergraduates, 10,865 master students, 5,335 doctoral students, and 3,216 full-time international students. The university boasts a faculty made up of the most accomplished scholars in China, a large number of outstanding disciplines and many important national and provincial research platforms. 

TEACHING IDEAS

Over the past century, centering on educating men and women, NJU has, in different historical periods, cultivated and turned out many talents, who have made enormous contributions and achievements in their respective fields. Since the Reform and Opening-up, the university has explored many different methods of reform in teaching and education and has brought up many important educational ideas and teaching theories, which have exerted significant influence on higher education both at home and abroad.

At present, NJU has set up the goal of “doing the best in undergraduate education,” adhering to the education idea of “integrating disciplinary building with undergraduate teaching, liberal education with personal cultivation, foundation broadening with practice deepening, and learning to learn with learning to be a citizen.” The university keeps deepening the reform of the mechanisms of cultivating creative talents and fostering leading figures and outstanding talents with creativity, practical ability and international vision for all walks of life in society.

RESEARCH

NJU’s predecessors were known for their science. The scientific spirit and the tradition of studying nature and pursuing truth have existed throughout NJU’s development and remains the most prominent character of its teaching and education. Generations of NJU faculty and students have worked hard unremittingly for the nation and people, making research achievements renowned in academia at home and abroad.

Today, NJU follows the principle of “strengthening applied subjects, focusing on foundation subjects, developing frontier subjects, and enhancing interdisciplinary cooperation” and the principle of “orienting basic research towards the international forefront of academia, and orienting applied research towards national strategic needs and the country’s economic construction so as to solve important theoretical and practical problems related to the well-being of the nation and people.” It is readjusting its research layout and reinforcing its research organization to enhance the overall level and capacity for original research and building itself into an important research center of China.  

INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION

Since the founding of the university in the early 20th century, NJU has been among the most active universities in carrying out international communication and cooperation and has built close relationship with many first-class universities and research institutes around the world. One example is the 30-year-long Center for Chinese and American Studies jointly administered by Nanjing University and Johns Hopkins University, China’s earliest long-term international cooperation program in higher education since the Reform and Opening-up. The center has fostered many pillar scholars for cultural communication between China and America, exerting enormous influence at home and abroad. In today’s new historical conditions, NJU is vigorously promoting international communication and cooperation in multiple fields and through multiple channels, raising its teaching to the international standards in every aspect.
