School of Education Administration


The School of Education Administration was founded in 1981. It consists of academic research centers for Educational Administration and Policy Studies, School Management and Development, Human Resource Management and Training, Educational Supervision and Evaluation, and two editorial departments, which are responsible for editing the leading academic journals such as Chinese Educational Administration Review, Educational Development Review, and the quarterly Educational Leadership and Training.

The School is one of the first colleges that offered doctoral and master’s programs in educational administration and is responsible for training of doctoral, postgraduate and undergraduate students. In 2007, Education Administration and Educational Economics were recognized as national key disciplines.

The School has a strong faculty team composed of 21 members. 19 of them have obtained doctoral degrees and three got their doctorate overseas. Besides there is a strong part-time faculty team composed of senior national officials, experts, scholars, and headmasters of famous primary and secondary schools. This team plays an important role in the development of the School.

At present, the School undertakes projects at both national and provincial levels and those granted by international organizations like UNICEF and the World Bank as well. A large number of influential papers have been published at home and abroad and numerous works have been translated to English, Japanese, Italian and Vietnamese. The scientific research projects done at the School have won many national and provincial prizes. The School is now aiming to make a steady progress in building a stronger faculty team, offering more prestigious degree programs and better training in educational administration, and promoting more international exchange and cooperation.
