Publishing time:2019-01-04 viewer:
Greetings to all teachers, students and friends! At this turn of the year, we, on behalf of HNUST, would like to extend our sincere greetings and heartfelt thanks to all staff, students, retirees, leaders at all levels, alumni at home and abroad and people from all walks of life who are concerned about and support the development of HNUST.
The year of 2018 is crucial for HNUST, in which we have studied and followed Xi’s Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era and the spirit of the 19th National Congress of the CPC to deepen comprehensive reform and implement the advancing strategy. At the same time, great progress has been made in all aspects of HNUST. In particular, HNUST was selected into “DoubleFirst-class” construction project of Hunan universities and colleges, and the key technologies like “Hainiu” deep-sea drilling technology are leading internationally, which marks a solid step taken by the teachers and students of HNUST to strive to promote the construction of high-level university.
Looking back on 2018, we feel that the development of HNUST cannot be done without the high attention of the leaders and society, and strong support frommass alumni. Meanwhile, we also realize that we must continue to make efforts to meet the need of economic and social requirements, and people’s expectation.
Dear teachers, students and friends,
Looking ahead to 2019, the 70th anniversary of HNUST is coming.After seven decades of trials and hardship, we can finally say with pride that we are now closer to the dream of HNUST people than at any time in history.However, the closer we get to our goals, the harder the journey will be. At this critical moment, we must assume new responsibilities and take new actions in order to be worthy of the great new era.
We should remember the springwhen we drink from the streamand need to forge ahead. In the coming year, we must take high moral values establishment and people cultivation as the fundamental task of education and turn “HNUST Dream” into down-to-earth and concrete actions to brighten up the construction of a distinctive high-level comprehensive university.
Last but not least, I wish all of you a better health, a better study, success, and happiness in the New Year.
