Recently, the Provincial Work Committee for Assessment and the Organization Department of the Provincial Party Committee announced the assessment results of college leadership and leaders in 2020, and the leading group of our school won the “Excellent Grade”.
In 2020, the leadership of our school adhered to the guidance of Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era, fully implemented the Party’s education policy, reformed with keen determination, maintained integrity and fostered innovation, led all teachers, students and staff to fulfil completely the fundamental task of cultivating students by virtue, and continue to promote the Party construction and high-quality development of various undertakings in our school. First, we took a clear stand on politics and always made political improvement a top priority in strengthening the leadership. The leadership serves as the “locomotive” for undertakings, and political construction the “rudder” for development. The school Party Committee focuses on the status of the group, the political ecology of the university and the development of the cause, thoroughly implements the Party’s organizational principle in the new era, adheres to the Party’s overall leadership over the work of the school, strictly implements the “First Issue” system, and grasps the “key minority”. In the course of continuing to deepen the theme education of “staying true to our founding mission” and promoting the learning of Party history, we should further strengthen the “four consciousness”, firm the “four confidence” and achieve the “two maintenance”.
Second, we made decisions conscientiously and fully implemented the president accountability system under the leadership of the Party committee. In accordance with the requirements of collective leadership, scientific decision-making, and Party-administration cooperation, we seriously implemented the democratic centralism. According to the requirements of the Ministry of Organization and the Ministry of Education, we’ve been continuously improving the three rules of procedure and decision-making procedures including the meetings of the party committee, the standing committee and the President Office, carrying out the missions of the school party committee: taking the right direction, managing the overall situation, making decisions, grasping the leadership, leading the team and ensuring implementation, striving to build a leading group with responsibility, unity and dedication, division of labor and cooperation, and smooth operation, and striving to promote the efficient and orderly operation of the school work.
Third, we focused on reform and continued to promote the modernization of the school governance system and capacity. Taking the comprehensive assessment of the school by the provincial Party committee as the lead, we pushed forward the comprehensive assessment reform of the secondary units in the school further gave full play of the role of the “baton” of the assessment. We introduced a new round of measures for the distribution of incentive performance-related pay, revised the measures for evaluating professional titles, advanced the reform of the education evaluation mechanism, improved the evaluation and incentive mechanism, and effectively stimulated the enthusiasm and creativity of the whole faculty and staff in promoting the development of the university.
Fourth, we wholeheartedly sought for development and strove to lead the connotation construction of the school and make new breakthroughs in various undertakings. In 2020, the school Party Committee coordinated the prevention and control of the pandemic and the connotation construction, the main party leaders provided overall leadership, took the initiative and shouldered the responsibility with other members of the team performing their own duties and managing their positions well so that the school strove to improve the level of running and the efficiency of internal governance in accordance with the requirements of the modernization of governance system and governance capacity. The quality and efficiency of community-level Party organizations continued to improve, and the morale of cadres was further boosted. The master degree conferring programs and master unit both passed the evaluation by the Provincial Academic Degrees Committee. The construction of Huai’an University and the planning and preparation for its new campus were advanced in an orderly manner, and the high-quality development of the university was systematically planned with a higher standing and a bigger pattern, which, with courage and effectiveness to enhance competence, has won the recognition and trust of all the teachers and students.
“The way ahead is much challenging”. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of China and the beginning of the 14th Five-Year Plan. It is also the key year for our school to build a high-level Huai’an University with distinctive characteristics. The school leadership will further implement the gist of General Secretary Xi Jinping’s important speech at Tsinghua University, unite teachers and students, promote “the spirit of the ox”, and will bear in mind the mission of cultivating talents for the Party and the state, promote the Party history learning and education, take the lead in the high-quality development of the school with high-quality Party building, strive to be a fine example and demonstrate with actions, become pacesetters, and greet the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Party with our outstanding achievements.
