Wang said 2019 will see the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China (PRC), and it not only signifies the university's start to further its development of the national project of “World-class Disciplines Development”and “the Guangdong High-Level University Sponsoring Project”, but also represents the next round of reforms of SCNU. The president then shared his expectations that the newly-appointed staff and faculty should be faithful in their love and loyalty to our country, determined in their educational ideals, staunch in the role model of virtue and invigorated in scientific research and innovation.


Professor Chen Jinlong, dean of School of Marxism, gave a speech at the event and welcomed the new colleagues. Representatives of fresh teachers, professor Li Jingbo, researcher Wang Qian and Miss Xie Shisi successively voiced their reflections and feelings at the stage. Li high-lighted his future goal as the president of the research institute of semi-conductors. Wang described her impression and experience over the past two months at SCNU with three words, passion, prosperity and solidarity. Xie stated her believe in the individuality of each student and as a fresh counselor she would explore students' talent and potential to the fullest. After these, the president awarded the appointment certificate and a book about history of South China Normal University to new teachers. Later all teachers present took an oath and chorused the song Me and My Country-so as to salute the approaching birthday of our country.
