Established in 1912 as “the Preparatory School for Further Study in Europe and America”,Henan University was then one of the three training bases for studying abroad in China. The school was the former provincial public education institution and located in the former site of "Imperial Examination Center". The year 1942 saw the founding of National Henan University, a comprehensive university that enjoyed profound academic strength and worldwide reputation, with faculties in humanities, science, engineering, agriculture, medicine and law. After the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949, the University was modulated into Henan Normal College. 1984 witnessed the restoration of Henan University. In 2008, it became a co-construct university by Henan Province and Ministry of Education of China, a “Plan 111” construction university in 2016, and “Double First-Class” initiative university in 2017.
