Learn about Tsinghua’s beginnings as a preparatory school for students going abroad to the United States, read about notable leaders who have paved the way for the university’s development, and witness Tsinghua’s commitment to excellence in education and research.  




During each period in history, Tsinghua has been practical, truth-seeking, and innovative, adhering to the school motto of “Self-Discipline and Social Commitment.“ Over 110 years, Tsinghua has nurtured outstanding scholars, entrepreneurs, and statesmen who have made significant contributions to the development of the country.
