Pioneer in Higher Education in Guangxi and Cradle of Modern Talents
Founded in 1928, GXU is the first institution of higher education in Guangxi. Its first president is Dr. Ma Junwu, a famous educator and scientist in China. His reputation in education equals to Cai Yuanpei (then president of Peking University) because they two were dedicated to reforming the educational system at the time. Dr. Ma Junwu was praised as the “Grand Master” by Premier Zhou Enlai. GXU is a comprehensive university with the longest history, largest scale, most disciplines and strongest comprehensive strength in Guangxi. Over the past 90 years, GXU has cultivated more than 400,000 professionals and talents, including academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Engineering, government leaders at all levels, backbones and experts in all walks of life.
