Jinggangshan University (JGSU, simplified Chinese: 井冈山大学; traditional Chinese: 井岡山大學; pinyin: Jǐnggāngshān Dàxué) is in the Jinggangshan Mountains in Qingyuan District, Ji'an city of Jiangxi province in China.[1] JGSU is jointly supported by the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China and the People’s Government of Jiangxi Province, pair-assisted by Tongji University and authorized by Nanjing Military Region for cultivation of military talents and cadres.

JGSU comprises 21 schools offering 75 undergraduate majors with modern language laboratories and computer centers covering around 170 hectares.[2] Out of nearly 1600 academic staff, 129 are professors and 409 associate professors, of which 154 possess a doctoral degree, and 611 a master's degree.

Jinggangshan University was ranked at 1038 according to the 2015 world university ranking.

The Journal of Jinggangshan University is a monthly periodical published by JGSU which covers the fields of philosophy and social sciences and nature sciences, each with their own editions.


Jinggangshan University was established in 1958 in Ji'an. Chinese Communist Party Chairman Mao Zedong and his colleagues established the first rural base of the revolution in the Jinggangshan Mountains in 1927.[3] In 1963, JGSU was closed for five years due to poor economic conditions in China.

In 1978, to reinstate JGSU, the Branch of Jiangxi Normal University and the Jiangxi Medical University in Jinggangshan were joined together. In April 1982 and March 1993, they were renamed as 'Jinggangshan Teacher's College' and 'Jinggangshan Medical School", respectively. In March 2000, after approval by the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China (MOE), Jinggangshan Teacher's College was renamed to Jinggangshan University after merging with Ji'an Educational Institute. In July 2003, approved once again by the MOE, Jinggangshan Normal University was renamed to Jinggangshan University by joining Jinggangshan Medicine College and Jinggangshan Vocational Technical College.
