Recently, the 2nd SLU Alumni Success Forum themed on “University-Enterprise Cooperation& Production-Education Integration” was held on the Xuhui Campus. Li Shiping (Chair of the University Council), Yang Li, (Vice Chair of the University Council and President), Gu Xiaomin (Vice President), representatives of outstanding alumni, and heads of relevant departments and SLU Schools attended the Forum, which was presided over by Gu Xiaomin.
Li Shiping pointed out in his speech that in the context of China’s introduction of the pilot implementation plan for production-education integration, this Forum themed on “Production-Education Integration” is of great significance for SLU to advance relevant work. He expressed his sincere gratitude to the alumni for attending the Forum, and invited them to contribute their opinions and suggestions in various important SLU tasks to jointly building SLU into a high-level local applied university.
Yang Li indicated in the speech that the “three-in-one” SLU education model initiated by President Pan Xulun had a profound impact on China’s modern model of industry-university-research-education integration. He emphasized that deepening the integration of production and education and promoting the organic convergence of the education chain, the talent chain, the industrial chain, and the innovation chain is a strategic move to promote the interpenetration, coordination and mutual promotion of education-first, talent-led and industrial innovation-based quality economic developments. He wants to build the Alumni Association into a platform for SLU and its alumni to jointly promote industrial-academic-research cooperation.
At the Forum, alumni discussed the SLU Implementation Plan for Constructing a Production-Education Integrated University (Discussion Draft). Centering on SLU’s reform of the talent training model as well as the production-education integrated the training plan, they combined with their own work experience, and put forward many pertinent ideas in terms of talent training concepts, professional setting, university-enterprise cooperation, information technology improvement, innovation and entrepreneurship development, etc.
The Alumni Success Forum is named after President Pan Xulun’s school motto “Never forgetting to establish my integrity, I will definitely achieve success”, which means that both SLU and its alumni will be “successful” and develop together. Founded in 2019, the Forum has become an important platform for the cooperation and development of SLU and its alumni as well as a bridge for communication between SLU and industries/enterprises.
