Jiangsu Normal University (simplified Chinese: 江苏师范大学; traditional Chinese: 江蘇師範大學; pinyin: Jiāngsū Shīfàn Dàxué) is a national university located in Xuzhou, Jiangsu province, China. It was jointly constructed by the Chinese Ministry of Education and the Government of Jiangsu Province.[1]


The university was established in 1952 as the Jiangsu Wuxi Business Cadre School in Southern Jiangsu's Wuxi. In 1956, the Chinese Ministry of Education granted permission for the school to become a higher education institution. Its name was changed to Jiangsu Normal Academy. In August 1958, the Jiangsu Normal Academy relocated to Xuzhou city in North Jiangsu. In March 1959, Xuzhou Normal Academy was merged with Jiangsu Normal Academy and became the Xuzhou Normal College, and became the only undergraduate college in North Jinagsu. In early 1960s, due to Zhou Enlai's suggestion that there should be a college in vast north Jiangsu, it avoided the fate of disappearing in the layout of higher education system.[2] During the Culture Revolution, once it changed its name to Huaihai College (淮海大学) by Red Guard, and stopped recruiting students for six years.[3] In 1979, it began to recruit postgraduates, and it became one of the first batch of universities than could confer master's degree in China in 1981.[4] In 1989, the Second Xuzhou Normal Academy (founded in 1984) was merged into Xuzhou Normal College. In 1996, Chinese Ministry of Education approved the college to upgrade to university. It was renamed as Xuzhou Normal University. In 1999, the State Coal Bureau's Xuzhou Industrial College merged into Xuzhou Normal University. This allowed the university to become a comprehensive university with specializations in engineering and sciences.[5]

Xuzhou Normal University was renamed as Jiangsu Normal University in 2011.[6]
