Shanghai Jiaotong University School of Continuing Education reprinted "People's Daily" report Jiang Sixian, Secretary of the Party Committee of Shanghai Jiaotong University, delivered a speech:
On May 2nd, General Secretary Xi Jinping pointed out at the Peking University Teachers and Students Symposium, "Only by grasping the fundamentals of cultivating socialist builders and successors, can we run a world-class university with Chinese characteristics." We must deeply understand and seriously implement the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important speech, adhere to the principle of educating people, and move towards world-class status.
The quality of talent training is the "authentic" of first-class universities. Since the reform and opening up, China's higher education has achieved a comprehensive improvement from scale to quality, and a number of high-level universities have risen rapidly. However, world-class universities are not simply measurable by indicators. "Only universities that have trained first-class talents can become world-class universities." Only by playing an irreplaceable important role in the economic and social development of the country and the world can it become a world-class university. The world-class university should be the one with the largest value-added education. This value-added is a complex function between graduates and freshmen. It is not only reflected in the improvement of basic knowledge and innovative skills in disciplines and professional fields, but also integrated with the spirit of science, academic literacy, and society. The cultivation and development of feelings.
To cultivate first-class talents, we must adhere to the correct political direction. Human beings have no morals, and the essence of educating people lies in virtues. Tang Wenzhi, the old president of Jiaotong University, emphasized that "we must know that if we want to become knowledge, we should be the first-class knowledge; if we want to be a career, we should be the first-class cause; if we want to be a talent, we should be the first-level talent. , Career, and talent, we must first sharpen the first-class conduct. " Today, the first-class conduct must be "bright virtue, abide by public morals, and strict private morality." Among them, patriotism is the most important. First-rate universities have grown up in the service of their own country. Patriotism is the primary quality and bright background of first-class talents. The world-class university we run is to train the builders and successors of the cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics. Our "double-class" construction can only have a position and a right to speak in the world if it is effective and effective in training socialist builders and successors. In recent years, Shanghai Jiaotong University has continuously strengthened the "four in one" education concept, highlighting the core role of "value leadership" and promoting the organic unification of "value leadership, knowledge inquiry, capacity building, and personality development". Encourage students to firmly establish their national feelings, internalize the "choose the university, choose the responsibility", and internalize the line, and align with the life coordinates of Academician Huang Xuhua, "Changing with thoughts and taking care of the country's urgency."
Cultivation of first-class talents must promote noble teachers and morals. "Teachers are also models of human beings." In the eyes of students, they often "know their teachers and believe in their ways." Teachers' words and deeds have a great impact on students. In order for university teachers to assume the responsibilities of guides and guides for the healthy growth of students, they must insist that educators receive education first. In order to implement the spirit of the National College Ideological and Political Work Conference, last year we held a school-wide "advance people, teach and educate people" deployment promotion meeting. Establish a "Teaching and Educating People Award", and commend it every year on Teachers 'Day. It rewards front-line teachers who are dedicated to teaching, graduate mentors who are willing to work as human ladders, dedicated ideological and political teachers, and guidance teachers who carefully guide students' science and innovation practice activities. Class teachers and other outstanding educating groups who care for students' growth. It should be said that a clear orientation of "building people with virtues, teaching and educating people" has been established.
At present, Shanghai Jiaotong University is conducting a discussion on educational thoughts on the theme of “Building People and Learning in Jiaotong University”, thoroughly implementing the spirit of General Secretary Xi Jinping's important speech on the reform and development of higher education, and comprehensively promoting the construction of “double-class”. Promote Guangzhou University to establish higher aspirations in life, obtain more value-added education, and have a better learning experience. We believe that the key to achieving this vision lies with teachers. We need to take practical measures to make the podium of colleges and universities be the glory of the teachers, to bring the most advanced academic achievements into the classroom and into teaching materials, and to let the best tutors train students beyond themselves.
Education is a country, and education is a country. Shanghai Jiao Tong University, with a history of 122 years, was born of Tuqiang, thrived on reform, and thrived on talents. The school will take the early establishment of a world-class university as its mission, take talent cultivation as its first mission, and strive to create a batch of newcomers of the era who will assume the role of national rejuvenation!
