As a leading university in the field of humanities and social sciences, RUC has been committed to the study of Humanistic Olympics since Beijing hosted the Summer Olympics, hoping to preserve and inherit the Olympic memory of the city. In September 2008, the RUC Humanistic Olympic Studies Center was awarded "Advanced Organization of Beijing Olympic and Paralympic Games" by China's State Council. It is the only university research center awarded by the State Council and the only "dual Olympic research center" dedicated to the history of the Beijing Olympic Games.
