We will actively promote the development of first-class disciplines and set up departments of physics and psychology; eight disciplines of school physics and psychology will be selected as key disciplines in the development plan of a high-level university; and we will set up the first national department of teacher education, Teacher Education College of Guangdong-Hong Kong- Macao greater bay area, Teacher Development Assessment Institute and the Guangdong Institute of Basic Education and Information Technology so as to provide strong support to the development of teacher training practice in our province. 9 new degree authorization points have been added, and its discipline construction reaches new height; 249 talents were recruited throughout the year, and new breakthroughs were made in the team building of teaching staff. The quality of personnel training has achieved remarkable results and the ability of scientific research and innovation has been greatly improved.

SCNU has witnessed robust and vigorous growth. Its comprehensive strength and core competitiveness steadily improved. The sense of satisfaction and well-being of teachers and students constantly improved. SCNU has taken a solid step in aiming to become one of the top-three teacher training colleges in China.
