On behalf of CCP BISTU Committee and all senior administrators, Wang Chuanliang extends warmest congratulations to all award-winners and pay high tribute to all faculties and staff who have been working hard and who have contribute to safety and health of students and faculties during the containment of coronavirus epidemic. Wang Chuanliang points out that the University is shouldering the responsibility of cultivating talents for the Party and the nation. Our fundamental mission is to promote education with focus on morality. Facing with challenges like the “epidemic syndrome” the fourth educational revolution, and promoting quality development of education, it is required that all faculties and staff shall shoulder their responsibilities and make their contributions. The great spirit of combating the coronavirus epidemic will be carried forward to guarantee the safety and security of the new semester so as to make greater contributions to cultivation builders and successors of socialism.
Centering on the theme “Being brave in shouldering responsibilities in education with focus on morality and building hope for fighting poverty via education”, Wang Chuanliang raises three requests. Firstly, we must hold onto the principle of education with focus on morality. As educators, we shall view cultivation of builders and successors of socialism as our fundamental mission and all faculties shall try to become faculties with noble ideals, sound morals, good education, and strong sense of discipline. Then we can nurture one generation after another talents for the country. Secondly, we shall continue with our reform on education and build a quality team of faculties. The Party’s leadership on teachers shall be further enhanced and favorable policies for teachers shall be conducted without hesitation. Equal focus shall be paid to both teachers’ morality and the respect of teachers. And thirdly, in the New Era, it is necessary for us to constantly improve ourselves. It is hoped that all faculties and staff shall arm themselves with Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era and become role models for students.
