History[edit] Founding[edit] When it was established on July 3, 1898, the school was known as the Imperial University of Peking( simplified Chinese: 京师大学堂; traditional Chinese: 京師大學堂; pinyin: Jīngshī Dàxuétángd ). It was established to replace Taixue or Beijing
Beijing
Guozijian, or Imperial College, as part of the Hundred Days' Reform initiated by Emperor Guangxu, Liang Qichao drafted the University's organising regulations. On Sep 21,1898, Empress Dowager Cixi, with support from conservatives, abruptly ended the Hundred Days' Reform and put Guangxu under house arrest at Yingtai. Cixi's coup d'état was followed by immediate abolishment of all policies and laws enacted by the reformers, and the Imperial University of Peking was the only part of the reform that survived.

In 1900, the university was paralyzed by the Boxer Rebellion, later in the year, the "Eight-Power Allied Forces" (八国联军)entered Beijing
Beijing
and the university's operating was continually suspended. The university's inaugural commencement was finally held on Dec 27,1902. In 1904, the university sent 47 students to study abroad, which marked the first time for Chinese higher education institution to send students study in foreign countries. Following the Xinhai Revolution, the Imperial University of Peking was renamed "Government University of Peking" in 1912 and then "National University of Peking" in 1919[20] (simplified Chinese: 国立北京大学; traditional Chinese: 國立北京大學; pinyin: Guólì Běijīng Dàxué).

The noted scholar Cai Yuanpei
Cai Yuanpei
was appointed president on January 4, 1917, and helped transform the university into the country's largest institution of higher learning, with 14 departments and an enrollment of more than 2,000 students. Cai, inspired by the German model of academic freedom, recruited an intellectually diverse faculty that included Hu Shih, Chen Duxiu, and Lu Xun. In 1919, students of Peking University formed the bulk of the protesters of the May Fourth Movement. Efforts by the Beiyang government to end the protests by sealing off the Peking University
Peking University
campus led to Cai's resignation. In 1920, Peking University
Peking University
became the first Chinese university to accept female students.

After the outbreak of the Second Sino-Japanese War in 1937 (and the resulting expansion of Japanese territorial control in east China), Peking University
Peking University
moved to Changsha
Changsha
and formed the Changsha
Changsha
Temporary University along with Tsinghua University
Tsinghua University
and Nankai University. In 1938, the three schools moved again, this time to Kunming, and formed the National Southwestern Associated University. In 1946, after World War II, Peking University
Peking University
moved back to Beijing. At that time, the university comprised six schools (Arts, Science, Law, Medicine, Engineering, and Agriculture), and a research institute for humanities. The total student enrollment grew up to 3,000. After the establishment of the People's Republic of China[edit] In 1949, after the People's Republic of China
China
was established, Peking University lost its "national" appellation to reflect the fact that all universities under the new socialist state would be public. In 1952, Mao Zedong's government re-grouped the country's higher education institutions with individual institutions tending to specialize in a certain field of study. As a result, some arts and science faculties of Tsinghua University
Tsinghua University
and former Yenching University were merged into Peking University. At the same time, however, the university lost its Law, Medicine, Engineering and Agriculture schools. These schools and faculties were either merged into other universities or to found new colleges. During the re-grouping, Yenching University
Yenching University
was closed up. Peking University moved from downtown Beijing
Beijing
to the former Yenching campus. The first disturbances of the Cultural Revolution
Cultural Revolution
began at Peking University in 1966; education there ceased between 1966 and 1970. In 2000, Beijing
Beijing
Medical University was merged back into Peking University and became the Peking University
Peking University
Health Science Campus. Beijing
Beijing
Medical University used to be Medical School of Peking University and was separated from Peking University
Peking University
at 1952. Peking University now has eight affiliated hospitals and 12 teaching hospitals. In 2001, Peking University
Peking University
established the Yuanpei Program which was formalized in 2007 as Yuanpei College, named in honor of a highly respected former university president Cai Yuanpei. The college hosts an elite undergraduate liberal program for select students. In 2001, Peking University
Peking University
set up a satellite campus in Shenzhen. The university's second business school was launched on this campus in 2004. In 2014, Peking University
Peking University
established Yenching Academy
Yenching Academy
as an interdisciplinary global leadership program to build a bridge between China

and the world. Campus[edit]

The campus of Peking University
Peking University
was originally located northeast of the Forbidden City
Forbidden City
in the center of Beijing, and was later moved to the former campus of Yenching University
Yenching University
in 1952. The main campus is in northwest Beijing, in Haidian district, near the Summer Palace
Summer Palace
and the Old Summer Palace; the area is traditionally where many of Beijing's most renowned gardens and palaces were built. The university campus is in the former site of the Qing Dynasty imperial gardens and it retains much traditional Chinese-style landscaping, including traditional houses, gardens, pagodas, as well as many notable historical buildings and structures. American architect and art historian Talbot Hamlin designed some of the university's buildings constructed during the 1919 to 1922 period.[21]There are several gates that lead into campus — East, West and South gates, with the West Gate being the most well known for the painted murals on its ceiling. Weiming lake is in the north of the campus and is surrounded by walking paths and small gardens. The university hosts many museums, such as the Museum of University History and the Arthur M. Sackler
Arthur M. Sackler
Museum of Art and Archaeology.[22][23] Notable items in these museums include funerary objects that were excavated in Beijing
Beijing
and date back thousands of years from the graves of royalties of the Warring States period. There are ritual pottery vessels as well as elaborate pieces of jewelry on display. There are also human bones set up in the traditional burial style of that period.[23] Beyond its main campus, Peking University
Peking University
Health Science Center (PKUHSC) is on Xue Yuan Road where the country's most distinguished colleges are. The PKUHSC's campus is less aesthetically appealing than the main Peking University
Peking University
campus but is nonetheless a fitting site for academics and research. In 2001, Peking University's Shenzhen

campus, the Shenzhen
Shenzhen
Graduate School, opened its doors. The campus is located in the northwest part of Shenzhen
