Hainan University research facilities fledging under Ministry-Province Joint Construction
A seven-member task force of the Ministry-Province Joint Construction program visited Hainan University (HNU) on July 20 to investigate its research facility.
There are 14 provinces that have no universities under the direct administration of the Ministry of Education. Each province has one key university selected into the program and enjoys the same treatment with those directly under the ministry.
The delegation, led by Gong Shiyuan, vice president of China Agricultural University, examined documents regarding HNU's constitution, management system, development plan, and disciplinary system. A field trip was paid to the colleges of law and tropical crops to investigate their teaching platforms and labs.
The delegation conducts field research at HNU.
Gong suggested that the university bring in more top-notch talents and improve their treatment. The colleges should be given adequate autonomy, while being put under a stricter evaluation system. Teachers' salaries are advised to vary with their capabilities.
Gong Yuanshi, vice president of China Agricultural University, speaks at the conference.
Qi Huan, vice dean of the College of International Law of the China University of Political Science and Law, noted that HNU should enhance international exchanges and cooperation amid the construction of the Hainan Free Trade Zone and Free Trade Port.
