The former Jilin University was established in 1946, and it grew out of the Northeast Administration College and the Northeast People's University. It developed and enlarged under the national policy of distributing higher education resources in key areas of the country. Over the years it evolved its unique university spirit and academic atmosphere, and was designated as a national key university covering wide and broad disciplines in both science and humanities. Before the merger, it had trained great numbers of talented persons and reached remarkable achievements in science and technology. As a result, it had become one of the important national training bases for professionals in basic sciences and for those pursuing high-level academic studies.
