Early years after establishment

The state raised the mission of Central Institute of Physical Education: to   cultivate professional sports talents with both ability and political   integrity, good health, loyal to the country and the socialist cause for the   country;

1958

State Physical Culture and Sports Commission proposed   that: physical culture institutions should establish the training objective   integrating teachers, coaches and excellent athletes;

The school proposed that “we should adhere to the   guidance of Deng Xiaoping Theory on developing socialism with Chinese   characteristics, uphold the Party’s basic line, implement the Party’s   educational policy, gear   education to modernization, the world and the future and insist the socialist direction   of school running. We should carefully implement the Outline of China’s Education Reform and Development, the strategy for   invigorating China through science and education, the strategy for   invigorating sports through science and technology as well as the Fitness for All Initiative and Olympic Glory-winning Program made by State   Physical Culture and Sports Commission and actively adapt ourselves to the   needs of socialist market economy and social development to cultivate   cross-century talents for China’s education and sports causes.
