Zhang Jian Education Development Foundation
Nantong University was founded in 1912. It originated from the private Nantong Medical Specialized School and Nantong Textile Specialized School founded by Zhang Jian, a famous modern industrialist and educator. In 2004, the former Nantong Medical College, Nantong Engineering College and Nantong Normal College merged to form a new Nantong University.
Under the guidance of Xi Jinping’s Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, Nantong University centers on the established goal and adheres to the principle of “building people with moral integrity”. Taking reform and innovation as the driving force, Nantong University is vigorously implementing the four strategies of “talent gathering, feature building, innovation driving and cultural leading”, focusing on promoting the “Eight Projects”, improving in an all-round way for comprehensive strength and core competitiveness, and striving for building a distinctive high-level university!
In order to lay a foundation for sustainable development, Nantong University has established “Zhang Jian Education Development Foundation”. The Foundation will take full advantage of funds and donation into every aspect of the development and supplement the hard and soft needs for school construction.
