In his report, combining with the practice of higher education management and research, Du elaborated on several major issues in the modernization of higher education from eight aspects, spanning the time and trend of higher education development, world-class standard and Chinese characteristics, discipline construction and talent teams, layout structure and service ability, talent training and mechanism innovation, opening-up and international cooperation, integrated education systems, as well as leadership and Party building.
He noted that being world-class means that universities should expand the level of opening up to the outside world and adhere to first-class standard to build a world-class evaluation system with Chinese characteristics.
