On April 21, the Yandu College held the Appointment Ceremony for the 2015 Academic Tutors and the Work Conference for all the Academic Tutors. The President of the CNU, Gong Huili, who is also the Dean of the college, attended the conference and presented appointment certificate for those tutors. The 2014 and 2015 academic tutors of the college and all staff were present at the conference.

 

Gong Huili spoke at the ceremony and introduced the three tasks of  the Yandu College as an experimental zone for reform. He hoped that the college would refer to similar successful cases within China and abroad, in the meanwhile, attract more outstanding teachers for talent training to let more Professors be acknowledged and get involved in the college’s exploration and practice.

 

The conference introduced the academic tutor system and the duties of academic tutors. The tutors gave suggestions regarding talent training, academic instruction and possible improvements.

 

The academic tutor system is a vital measure for the college to improve talent training and demonstrate convergent effects for educating undergraduate students. The system refers to the practices of ‘honor colleges’ at high-level universities, reflects on the CNU’s experience of the training program of high-end talents and insists on the idea that a Professor will predominate and fully participate in the undergraduate education. Those tutors are selected and appointed from the high-end professors from various colleges and departments. They will instruct students on study, choice of program, research innovation, domestic and international exchange programs, mental health and other aspects.
