It was formerly known in English as the Central University for Nationalities (CUN). The university awards undergraduate-level degrees in 55 academic subjects, usually after four years of study. There are 64 masters and 25 doctoral programmes. While young people from the majority Han group are the largest single ethnicity among the 15,000 students, 60% of the students and more than one third of the academic staff are from other nationalities. By far the strongest research areas are anthropology and ethnology, which are the mainstays of its small publishing house and journal. In 2001, the Peoples Daily described CUN as "Chinas top academy for ethnic studies." Other respected departments are the dance school and the minority language and literature departments.

The Communist Party of China first established a Nationalities Institute in its Civil War stronghold of Yanan, in central China, in October 1941. In 1950-1952, this was merged with other ethnolinguistic and sociological departments, including elements of Peking University and Tsinghua University. The result was the Central Institute for Nationalities, which was established in 1951 and officially opened on 11 June 1952. The institute was assigned a large area of parkland on the outskirts of Beijing as its campus. On the upside, the institute expanded into science subjects during the 1980s and achieved university status on 30 November 1993. In 1999 it was granted "key university" status, as part of Project 211, which was supposed to identify 100 Chinese universities that would play leading roles in the 21st century. Since 2004 the university has been a participant in Project 985, a major national programme to raise 39 universities to world-class status. The campus has been almost completely reconstructed as part of this programme.
