Historical  Events

Thanks to the great care by the late Premier Zhou Enlai and approved by then  Vice Premier Deng Xiaoping, Beijing Second Foreign Language Institute (now the  BISU) was founded in 1964. This new foreign language institution of higher  learning was under the leadership of China International Cultural Liaison  Commission. On October 24, 1964, a grand ceremony to mark the founding and  commencement of the school was held. Mr. Guo Moruo inscribed the name for the  school; Mr. Li Chang, commissar and vice director of China International  Cultural Liaison Commission, was appointed president of the school. Later in  June 1970, the China International Cultural Liaison

Commission was disbanded, and the school came under the leadership of  Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Education and China National Tourism  Administration successively. In 2000, BISU was transferred to the jurisdiction  of Beijing Municipality.
