Institute of Higher Education Liaoning University grew out of Higher Education Research Office of Liaoning University, which was established in 1981. The institute, together with the former Dalian Institute of Technology (now Dalian University of Technology), the former Northeast Institute of Technology (now Northeastern University), the former Dalian Shipping Institute (now Dalian Maritime University), China Medical University, and the former Shenyang Agricultural College (now Shenyang Agricultural University) five higher education research offices, was the earliest established higher educational research institution in Liaoning Province. In the same year, Liaoning University decided to change the Journal of Teaching Research originally sponsored by academic affairs office to be sponsored by Higher Education Research Office from the 12th issue, and changed its name to the Journal of Liao University Higher Education Research, which distributed internally.
The institute has been the backbone of higher education research in the province, and has been awarded the title of Liaoning Province Mid-"Ninth Five-year" outstanding educational research collective and so forth. In October 1996, the institute and Liaoning Institute of Higher Education jointly held the annual conference on the development strategy and structural layout of China's higher education for the 21st century.

Due to the reasons of institutional adjustment, personnel changes, and so forth, the independent work of the Institute of Higher Education was suspended. In July 2017, the University Party Committee researched and decided to resume the establishment of Institute of Higher Education Liaoning University.
