Prof. Peihua Gu, one of the academicians of Canadian Academy of Engineering and the previous Director of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering of University of Calgary, was named the executive headmaster of Shantou University (STU), becoming the first foreign executive headmaster of university in China.

Prof. Gu was appointed by Li Ka Shing Foundation and the headmaster of STU was still Xu Xiaohu, who was appointed by the Provincial Party Committee Organization Department.

Different from other universities in China, the Board of Headmasters in STU has decision-making on major issues, but STU is also administrated by Department of Education.
