Officers from the University and related functional departments replied to questions and suggestions from colleges.


President Zhou indicated that PKU was in a critical period of development. "Building a world-class university" is not only the goal for the development of PKU itself, but also a historical responsibility given by the Party and the country to PKU. Thus PKU must seize the opportunity to be united and do a good job in all fields of work. He said that PKU couldn’t develop without the support and contributions of the colleges. All the functional departments of PKU should further strengthen the sense of service and actively assist colleges to solve practical problems in their development. More work would be done to further protect the autonomy of colleges for their development. He also asked the colleges to improve management, innovate the systems and mechanisms, and promote the development of disciplines and talents training. He put forward some specific requirements for teaching, researching, student employment after graduation and financing of the colleges and further stressed that academic researches should pay more attention to the needs of national development, both for the present and the future, and actively encourage and guide the teachers and researchers to combine personal interests, personal expertise with the needs of the country, and integrate the process of scientific researches with talents training so as to make a greater contribution to the development of PKU, Beijing, and China.


As the activities of learning and practicing the Scientific Concept of Development goes on, President Zhou will inspect more colleges.
