About CCME

    The Center for Citizenship and Moral Education (CCME) at Beijing Normal University was inaugurated in September 2003, focusing mainly on the fields of Citizenship and Moral Education. It is a center for academic research、creative teaching and professional service to the community and society at large. Its staff includes Professor TAN Chuanbao, director; four core researchers; twelve full-time researchers in BNU; more than ten community part-time researchers and collaborative partners outside of campus; one post-doctorate; about twenty doctorate and graduate students. Our research covers: moral education; the ethics of teacher; citizenship education; human rights education; school moral education diagnoses; aesthetic view of moral education; the theory of human perspective of moral education; sociology of moral education and so on.
    Since its founding in 2003, CCME has been upholding the motto: “Accelerate social progress through academic research. Promote individual well-being through moral education”. With this faith, we commit ourselves to enhancing the quality of individual life and developing individual’s modern civic awareness ; putting forward unremitting efforts to make China and the whole world more civilized by initiatively linking all of our work with human destiny and social development. Over the years CCME has successfully completed research programs touching a wide range of fields including: Program of United Nations Children's Foundation、Key programs of China National Social Science Foundation、programs of China National and Beijing Municipal Educational Science Research Plan、Research Project Commissioned by the National Department of Education and Beijing Municipal Education Committee、project of Hong Kong Tin Ka Ping Foundation on “the Promotion of School Moral Education” and so on, successfully hosting the Annual Conferences of China National Association of the Theory of Moral Education and of Asian Pacific Network for Moral Education, etc. What’s more, we have made great contributions to the increasing development of China and world’s moral education through extensive international and domestic exchanges by visiting or receiving visitors.
    An ancient Chinese wisdom proclaims: “A man of virtue never stands isolated; he will always have comrades.” “There is an intellectual. There is justice.” We believe that moral education is the most beautiful cause and humanistic practice which concerns everyone’s life、dignity and freedom 、the value of life and happiness. We believe that citizenship education can be regarded as the fundamental transformation of the nature and objectives of China’s education by which we can shape a more equal and just society. We, at the Center for Citizenship and Moral Education at Beijing Normal University, are willing to build the best platform for all colleges and universities and community groups in these fields around the world.
