Party Secretary Cui Keyong chaired the conference and delivered an important speech. He pointed out that the theme of this year's Teacher¡¯s Day is ¡°Take the lead in practice the socialist core values¡±. On how to cultivate and practice the socialist core values, he proposed three points: First, we must fully recognize and understand the great meaning of practicing the socialist core values; second, taking the lead in practice the socialist core values is teachers¡¯ responsibility; thirdly, we should actively guide students to practice the socialist core values. He stressed that all the faculty should seriously study General Secretary Xi Jinping¡¯s important speech on educational work, and his address at the forum in Beijing Normal University. We should also learn the important speech of provincial party secretary Wang Rulin, being a good teacher who meets the Party and the people¡¯s satisfaction, and leading the healthy growth of students. He stressed that at present, our University¡¯s Party¡¯s mass line educational practice and rectification work is further deepening. Transition and upgrading has become a consensus. With more enthusiasm, better mental state, and more pragmatic style, all university faculties should take the lead in practicing the socialist core values; fully implement the fundamental task of moral composition and talents cultivation, to make new and greater contributions in improving our University¡¯s teaching and education quality comprehensively.
