After several changes of location, the University was moved to Hefei in 1956. It was renamed several times, until Mao Zedong inscribed the name “Anhui University” on September 16, 1958, which was designated as the university’s anniversary day. As an institution of higher learning with red revolutionary traditions, Anhui University has been operating for nearly 100 years. During this period, Anhui University has taken the responsibility of national rejuvenation, adhered to the schooling ideal of “focusing on cultural confidence as the primary driving force for Chinese nation’s great rejuvenation”, and obeyed the university motto spirit of “being extremely sincere and determined, learning widely, and practicing earnestly”.
