Abstract

Colleges in China enjoy the reputation as the light of the society in that they are the important source of power pushing social development and human civilization progress. As well, college is the location in which cultural power exists and disseminates. Literatures since 1990s with regard to topics in cultural power and its impacts in modern Chinese higher education institutions (i.e. four-year colleges) were identified in China Knowledge Resource Integrated Database (CNKI). By reviewing these works, we concluded that collegiate cultural power is fostered in certain social and historical environment as well as in the process of establishing college, and it plays a significant role in developing college, boosting regional development, and impelling social progress. In addition, we broke collegiate cultural power down into four dimensions, and internal relationships among four dimensions were examined in the end, aiming at facilitating understanding of how four dimensions interact with each other.
