On May 21, JIANG Zeting, Secretary of CPC Committee, BUCEA, led a group of colleagues to review the progress of international development of BUCEA. The meeting was attended by CHEN Gang, Deputy Secretary of CPC Committee, BUCEA, LI Aiqun, Vice President of BUCEA, SUN Dongmei, Member of BUCEA’s Standing Committee of CPC Committee, and other heads of departments and units, such as Party and Administration Affairs Office, Organization Department, Publicity Department, Human Resources Office, Office of Academic Affairs, Graduate School, Science and Technology Development Research Institute, Finance Office, Office of State-owned Assets, School of Environment and Energy Engineering.
JIANG Zeting affirmed the efforts of IDRI for the past year since its founding. He stressed that international development plays an important part in building a high-level university, and is crucial for BUCEA to build top-notch faculty, establish first-class disciplines, cultivate outstanding students and make immense contributions to the society. He demanded IDRI to conform with the objectives of the 14th Five Year Plan and further clarify work priorities. First, with the support of the Belt and Road Architectural University International Consortium, IDRI should continue to enhance the “1+N” innovative platform and give impetus to the model of “One University for Multiple Sci-Tech Parks”. Second, IDRI should prompt the application for Sino-foreign Cooperatively-running Programs, improve policy framework and coordination among departments, and upgrade the quality of international education. Third, BUCEA should give free rein to IDRI’s role as a middle ground, which can provide a platform for the institutes and faculty’s development and serve for students’ cultivation, thus, culminating in a linkage mechanism that can widely mobilize the schools. Fourth, BUCEA should strengthen the Party building, incorporating the study of the CPC history and the special action regarding Three Styles of Work, and thus ensure the requirements of “upholding the leadership of the CPC in talents and international affairs” put into practice.
During the Panel Discussion, CHEN Gang, LI Aiqun made arrangements for further work, and JIANG Jie reported on the progress related to international development. CHEN Tao, DING Shuai, ZHANG Qunli also made supplementary remarks. The participants exchanged their ideas for in-depth discussion.
