China Youth University of Political Studies (Chinese: 中国青年政治学院; pinyin: Zhōngguó Qīngnián Zhèngzhì Xuéyuàn) is a university in Beijing, established in 1985 by the Communist Youth League of China. Since then the university has been affiliated with the league, and the leader (First Secretary) of the league usually holds the presidency of the university. Hu Jintao, the General Secretary of the Chinese Communist Party and President of China, was once the president of this university. The university's 12-hectare (30-acre) campus is located in Xisanhuan Bei Lu (West 3rd Ring Northern Road) in Beijing. The China Youth University of Political Studies ceased operation as a public university in 2017. It is now a co-brand used by the Central School of the Communist Youth League of China (Chinese: 中央团校; pinyin: Zhōngyāng Tuán Xiào), a training school run by the Communist Youth League.

History

The university grew from the Central School of the Communist Youth League of China which was founded in 1948, and was a political training school serving the Communist Youth League. In 1985, as part of political reforms under the reformist administration of Hu Yaobang to convert party organs into public institutions under a public administrative structure, the Youth League School was converted to a public university, under the name of the China Youth University of Political Studies. The university began enrolling undergraduate students in 1986.

However, as part of the counter-reform measures implemented by the administration of Xi Jinping to convert public institutions back into party organs, in 2017-2018 the China Youth University of Political Studies was moved back into the control of the Communist Youth League. Its undergraduate school was merged into the University Chinese Academy of Social Sciences. The establishment of the Central School of the Communist Youth League of China was revived under the control of the Communist Youth League, although the school will continue to be co-branded as the China Youth University of Political Studies.
