The original Sichuan University was one of the earliest institutions of higher education in China, with a history dating back to the Sichuan Zhong-Xi Xuetang (Sichuan Chinese and Western School) established in 1896. Today's Sichuan University is the result of a merger of three national universities. In 1994, the original Sichuan University merged with the Chengdu University of Science and Technology, a national university under the Ministry of Education. The merged university was briefly known by the name Sichuan Union University. In 2000, Sichuan University merged with West China University of Medical Science, a university under the State Ministry of Health, and became the new Sichuan University.
Over the long course of its schooling, it has accumulated rich cultural heritage, formed a solid educational foundation and created the university spirit of "Diligence, Rigorous, Realistic and Innovation".
