We should fully implement the Party's educational policy, implement the fundamental task of cultivating people by virtue, strengthen the effectiveness of ideological and political education, persist in educating people for the Party and the country, establish an effective mechanism for teaching and educating people, and comprehensively improve the quality of personnel training in our school. Second, we must find the right direction, adhere to innovation-driven development, promote the construction of "four new", take Excellence Plan 2.0, new engineering and new liberal arts projects as the starting point, open up new tracks in new fields and continue to promote the construction of "four new", thus promoting research results into practical results, constantly forming new kinetic vibe and new advantages, and driving the innovation and development of "four new". Third, we must solve the difficulties and persist in building a learning community where teaching and learning benefit from each other. On the one hand, we should establish a mechanism for cultivating teaching ability and pay attention to the cultivation of teachers' morality and style, giving full play to the leading role of excellent teaching team and first-class professional course demonstration. We should help teachers adhere to philosophy of lifelong learning and create a positive atmosphere of pursuing excellence. On the other hand, we should cultivate students' thinking ability, innovative thinking and practical ability, executing the "student-centered" education concept throughout the whole process of educating people, so as to improve the academic precautious warning and student assistance system.
