East China Normal University (ECNU) is recognized as one of Shanghai’s top public research universities under the patronage of the Ministry of Education, and is included in China’s national education projects, “Project 211” and “Project 985”.
Covering a total area of 207 hectares, one of the campus locations is situated in the Minhang district of Shanghai (address: No. 500, Dongchuan Road, Shanghai) and the other is located in the district of Putuo in Shanghai (address: No. 3663, Zhongshan Road North, Shanghai). It was formed in 1951 with the merger of the Great China University founded in 1924 and Kwang Hua University established in 1925, and was joined at the same time by a number of faculty members from the St. John’s College, Fudan University, Tongji University, and Zhejiang University. In 1959, ECNU was officially declared as one of the first of the 16 national universities leading in China’s higher education; its status was re-affirmed in 1978. In 1972, it was known as Shanghai Normal University, merging with Shanghai Normal College and Shanghai Sports College. In 1980 its original name was resumed after the above-mentioned colleges were disbanded from ECNU.
In 1986, ECNU was selected to be one of the first of the 33 higher education institutions authorized by the State Council with an established graduate school system. In 1996, after being approved by the Ministry of Education, ECNU became one of the first universities sponsored by the major national programs, “Project 211”.
