Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Central Committee of CPC and the State Council have attached great importance to graduation and employment work. President XI Jinping, who has been at the forefront coordinating epidemic prevention and control measures as well as economic and social development policies, has repeatedly stressed the need to focus on the work of graduates. During this period, USTB has strictly implemented the requirements of the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security and Beijing Municipality for this year’s work in the conferral of degrees and helping students to find employment or start their own business. In view of the current situation, all university faculty should do their best in three aspects. First, we should improve our work in carrying out our main responsibilities and work together to overcome difficulties. Second, we should strengthen educational guidance and improve our ability to educate students. We should provide a strong platform for talent training and scientific planning and development, and strengthen moral guidance for all graduates. Third, we should put people first, strengthen humanistic care, focus on student work and effectively do a good job in ensuring students graduate smoothly.
Prof. YANG Renshu said that during this special period, the whole university should continue carrying out the task of cultivating talents with a high sense of responsibility and vision, and do everything possible to see that graduating students find good employment. All units should implement the spirit of the day’s meeting, unify their understanding at all levels, adhere to the university’s overall planning, provide guidance, and make strong efforts to ensure the graduation and employment of students during the pandemic period.
