Rengong Hu, an artificial lake constructed when the University was first built has been maintained during spring, summer and autumn. In winter, water is frozen and a part of the surface is operated as a skating rink.

Rengong Hu was later renamed as Sai Hu (in Mongolian, sai means good). During the Fortieth Anniversary of the founding of the University in 1997, it was again renamed as Taoli Hu (in Chinese, Taoli means intellectual; while in Mongolian, Toli means mirror). Its water surface is 13,000 square meters.

To meet the need for rapid development of higher education in both Inner Mongolia and the whole China, the University is undergoing an expansion on a large scale. New campus is being built in suburban Huhhot.

However, local judicial organs expressed their interest in learning from their colleagues in other Chinese cities where big cases have been investigated.

For example, at College of Law, such courses have officially been listed during an important curriculum reform since mid-2000s. Many other colleges followed this practice. An atmosphere of multilingual education is emerging and developing.

Organization

As most Chinese universities with strong Chinese characteristics, Inner Mongolia University includes a huge administrative system, besides its teaching and research system. There are even some enterprises operated under the umbrella of this university. Considering problems accompanying such institutions, operational efficiency and effectiveness have always been focuses of reform and innovation of this university.

It is yet unclear whether these colleges are still equivalent to schools, or are enlarged based on those schools.

Phenomenon of Brain Drain

For long, the University has been suffering from serious brain drain. Due to low payment and heavy burden, professors and other qualified personnel seek employment at inland universities and enterprises. Many of them also seek opportunities abroad. As other universities in China, there is not a clear and reasonable rule on how personnel can move reasonably, people have to leave the university without official approval. As a result, dozens or hundreds of people work or study in other places on one hand, the University does not officially provide any support for them on the other.
