Central University for Nationalities
Colleges and Universities

The Central University for Nationalities (CUN) is one of China’s most important comprehensive universities, and it is one of the 38 key universities receiving direct development support from the Chinese government. The goal for the Central University for Nationalities is to build up as “a first-class ethnic university in the world”.

The Central University for Nationalities has an advantageous geographical position, being located in an urban district of Beijing, and transportation is very convenient. There are many buses and a subway outside the front gate of CUN. CUN is situated in a university district, near the National Library to its south, and the Chinese “Silicon Valley”-Zhong Guan Cun high-technology industry base to its north. It has a beautiful flower-garden style campus, something rarely seen in northern China.

中央民族大学是国家民族事务委员会直属的综合性重点大学,是全国唯一进入国家“211工程”“985工程”建设的民族高等院校,在我国高等教育体系和民族团结进步事业中具有十分重要的地位。学校前身是1941年9月成立的延安民族学院。1951年6月,中央民族学院在北京正式成立,乌兰夫任首任院长。

党和国家历届领导集体始终关心和重视中央民族大学的建设和发展。建校初至1966年,毛泽东、刘少奇、周恩来、朱德等党和国家领导人先后14次接见学校师生代表。改革开放以后,邓小平3次接见师生代表。1993年学校更名为中央民族大学时,国家主席江泽民同志为学校题写了新校名。2001年6月,学校50周年校庆之际,国务院总理朱镕基同志到校视察,并代表中央政府提出了“把中央民族大学建成世界一流的民族大学”的奋斗目标。同年,胡锦涛、李岚清等国家领导人亲自审批了国家民委、教育部、国家计委、财政部四部委联合上报的《关于进一步办好中央民族大学的请示》。2002年6月,国家民委、教育部、北京市人民政府签署了《关于重点共建中央民族大学的协议》。在党和国家的高度重视下,学校1979年被批准为国家重点大学,1999年成为 国家“211工程”重点建设大学,2004年成为国家“985工程”重点建设大学。

国际教育学院成立于2002年,现有教职员工36人。80%以上的专职教师具有汉语作为外语教学能力认定高级证书。主要有管理和办学两大职能:
