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”.
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”. From 1997 to 1998, Shanghai Preschool Education College, Shanghai Education College, and Shanghai No. 2 Education College were incorporated into ECNU. In 2002, construction of the Minhang campus consummated a new cornerstone in ECNU history, and upon its completion in 2006, it replaced the campus at Zhongshanbei road to become the main campus of the university. In 2006, the Ministry of Education and Shanghai city government signed a partnership to co-sponsor the development of the university. This qualified ECNU as a member of the national “Project 985”, and facilitated ECNU’s efforts to be more comprehensive, research-oriented, and internationalized.
