Shanxi University Listed in the National Program of “Promoting the Comprehensive Strength of Colleges and Universities in the Mid-west Regions of China”
  In early November 2012, Shanxi University received a document (MOE Higher Education Department Document No.: [2012]176) from the Higher Education Department of Ministry of Education, notifying the university of the necessity to work out Construction Planning of a University Listed in the National Program of “Promoting the Comprehensive Strength of Colleges and Universities in the Mid-west Regions of China” (2012-2015) and to make a working scheme correspondingly. This signifies that Shanxi University has embarked on a new platform provided by the state government to specially develop one distinctive and high-level university in each province, thus quickening its steps of development and eventually enhancing its comprehensive strength.

  The Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Finance initiated the program of “promoting the comprehensive strength of colleges and universities in the Mid-west regions” and gave special support to Xinjiang Construction Corps and those provinces and districts without ministry-affiliated higher learning institutions to build one university with advantageous strength and distinctive characteristics. This is a great move in that it aims to implement the National Education Plan, to optimize the structure of higher education, to quicken the process of narrowing down the inter-regional gap in higher education, to promote the leaping development of higher education in mid-west regions and to build a powerful country in higher education. Taking into consideration the overall situation of higher learning institutions in Shanxi Province, Shanxi Provincial Education Department reported to Shanxi Provincial People’s Government and recommended Shanxi University to apply for the program. After the serious discussion at the office meeting of the governor of Shanxi Province, the report was approved and an application letter (Shanxi Political Document No.: [2012]128) titled “On Shanxi University’s Inclusion in the Program of Promoting Comprehensive Strength of Mid-west Regions” was submitted to the Ministry of Education.

  In the letter submitted by Shanxi Provincial People’s Government was given the reason why Shanxi University should be given the opportunity. “Shanxi University was founded in 1902. It is one of the three oldest state-run universities in China. Over the past 110 years, Shanxi University has gained profound cultural accumulation and fine school spirit. It has also cultivated a large number of excellent talent and made outstanding contribution to the economic and social development of Shanxi Province. Since Shanxi University was co-developed by Shanxi People’s Government and the Ministry of Education in 2005, owing to the vigorous support from the Ministry of Education, Shanxi University was more reasonably oriented and its conditions were further improved. As a result, the overall level and strength of the university was notably enhanced. Therefore, Shanxi University’s inclusion in the program of “promoting the comprehensive strength of colleges and universities in the Mid-west regions” will further upgrade its level and give better play to its modeling role, thus spurring the overall development of higher education in Shanxi Province.”

  It is reported that 14 local universities in 14 provinces and districts have been included in the program of “promoting the comprehensive strength of colleges and universities in the Mid-west regions”.
