Message from the Dean

Welcome to the School of Education (SOE) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University! Whether you are a student, a faculty or staff member, a partner of our work, or a member of the broader community with interest in educational issues, I am glad you found your way to SOE’s website. We are an academic community dedicated to improving education. All we do aims to meet the changing needs of the local and global community and to make human experiences better for generations to come.

We are committed to excellence and innovation in teaching. Our students have been benefiting from access to some of the leading voices in their fields. Further, our partnerships with local leading high schools and governmental agencies provide our students with unparalleled access to hands-on and on-the-ground learning opportunities. Such experiences prepare our students to shape minds, to inspire their students, to conduct research, and to lead educational change.

I am honored to be among a group of distinguished faculty and staff members. Our scholarship addresses some of the most challenging issues facing education today, such as building world-class universities, supporting students’ career development, facilitating STEM education, and improving students’ classroom learning experiences. Further, we have been building think tanks and providing intellectual support for local and national decision-making.

I invite you to explore our innovative educational offerings, find out our most cutting-edge research, and reach out to connect with our community.

Professor LIU Niancai
