 The Introduction to Hangzhou Elderly Crdre University

        Founded in January 1985, Hangzhou Elderly Cadre University is the earliest university for the elderly established in Zhejiang Province. The university is affiliated with the Communist Party of China Hangzhou Municipal Bureau of Retired Veteran Cadres. So a member of the Hangzhou Municipal Standing Committee and minister of the Organization Ministry is the president of Hangzhou Elderly Cadre University. During these years, the university has been awarded the honorary titles of The National Advanced University for the Elderly, Provincial Model School of Standardized Construction, Municipal Civilized Unit, and Hangzhou International Tourist Access Point Top Ten Units. These awards were presented by the China Association of the Universities for the Aged, the Provincial Bureau of Retired Veteran Cadres, and the Hangzhou government. 

        Under the kindly care of Hangzhou Municipal Party Committee and Government and the direct leadership of the University Council, Hangzhou Elderly Cadre University follows the educational tenet of “increasing the knowledge, enriching the life, cultivating the taste, promoting the health" of retired cadres and integrating them into the society. These goals are achieved in accordance with the educational direction of politicized construction, standardized management and people-oriented service. With the school-running model of “one university, two campuses”, Hangzhou Elderly Cadre University has an improved research center on Qingchun Road and a teaching basics center on Jiefang Road with well equipped and advanced teaching facilities. The teaching building area is 16000 square metres, which can hold 8000 Elderly cadre students. The curriculum is reasonable in each of the five departments: Chinese Calligraphy and Chinese Painting, Health Care, Literature and History of Chinese and Foreign Languages, Techniques for Photography, Singing and Dancing. And there is also a Golden Autumn Fine Arts of Veteran Cadre which is orginized by the Art Troupe, Paintings Center, Lecturer Mission, Photography Seminar and Chrysanthemum Nursery Poetry Club. All of them have set the stage for the elderly art-lovers to show themselves. And the university also engages many excellent teachers who arrange the teaching process meticulously. So the elderly art-lovers have achieved good accomplishments in all kinds of performances and games. At the same time, relying on the “Hangzhou Party school of retired veteran cadres” the university also has organized various forms of current politics education activities to enrich the spiritual and cultural life of the elderly cadres. So they will form their political stands, renew their ideas and maintain their dreams all the life.

        As the university integrates teaching, studying, playing and doing together, it has become a university with “superior quality, appropriate scale, extensive knowledge, complete range of disciplines and distinguished features”. So Hangzhou Elderly Cadre University has achieved great accoplishments just as the flowers and fruits full of the campus. And as great minds mature slowly, many mentees have become famous calligraphers, Chinese painters, poets and photographer in Zhengjiang Province even in the national wide. In the Elderlyr Citizen Education Institute at home and abroad, the faculties of the unversity have published more than 60 papers about Elderly citizen education. And we have received more than 500 groups as many as 8,000 members of international friends from Japan and America and compatriots from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan.

        Currently Hangzhou Elderly Cadre University has been a “shiny silver window” and a new name card of Hangzhou to show the  elegant demeanour of the Elderly citizens and the happiness and harmony of Hangzhou. It is highly appreciated by the Retired veteran cadres and the professions at home and abroad.
