Hangzhou Normal University started as Zhejiang Official Level-Two Normal School in 1908.It was renamed Zhejiang Provincial First Normal School in 1913. In times of upheaval, the university set changes in motion and emerged as Zhejiang’s pioneer in democracy and science. In 1978, Hangzhou Teachers College was formed on the basis of Hangzhou Normal School. At the turn of the 21st century, multiple institutions were successively combined with Hangzhou Teachers College. 2007 marked the birth of the new Hangzhou Teachers College, officially today’s Hangzhou Normal University.   

The journey was full of challenges, but we persevered. Along the way, we at Hangzhou Normal University, one generation after another, have united around our motto “Diligence, Conscientiousness, Honesty and Generosity, Erudition, Elegance, Refinement and Excellence” to preach and practice teaching and learning as we moved with the times in an open and inclusive way while staying true to our shared vision. Since its 100th anniversary in 2008, HZNU has been pursuing a brand-new strategy of making itself a first-class university. A defining moment came when HZNU, which is now among China’s top 100, was put on Zhejiang’s agenda for key universities in 2017.  

With 23 schools, and 1 affiliated hospital, Hangzhou Normal University has Cangqian, Xiasha and Yuhuangshan campuses, covering a total area of about 240 hectares, with a total construction area of 2.4 million square meters. It has nearly 2400 staff members and 1700 full-time teachers,and more than 24,000 full-time students, including more than 20,000 undergraduates, over 3,200 graduate students, and about 360 international degree students.  

HZNU glitters with a galaxy of high-level scholars and scientists who are widely acknowledged provincially and nationally. Represented by 1 academician from Chinese Academy of Sciences, we have more than 80 top talents on provincial and national level,including Chang Jiang Scholars, Distinguished Young Scholars who got National Fund and 3 National Outstanding teachers.With its hard work, HZNU has been gaining strength and showing great advancement. With 6 of its disciplines in the top 1% of international ESI disciplines, the University is now among China’s top 100 by ESI ranking and has secured a leading position among its provincial peers when it comes to the overall strength of disciplines.    

HZNU keeps a close eye on the Belt and Road Initiative and follows closely what is going on globally. The University, which is among the first to be accredited by CEAIE for international student education,co-runs a Confucius Institute in partnership with Middle Tennessee State University in the United States,and a Joint Institute with Kharkiv National University in Ukraine.Friendly ties have been established with over 70 renowned universities around the world, confirming its belief that openness and inclusiveness should be the tone for international exchanges.
