Before concluding the meeting, Party Committee Secretary Lu Yunsong extended thanks to the conferees for the efforts they have made in the work of 2019 and their support of the School development. He emphasized that we should make new contribution to the School by adhering to Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for the New Era and accomplishing the fundamental task of fostering students’ virtue through education. Currently the situation for epidemic prevention and control is rather austere and complex, so we should never lose vigilance either physically or spiritually. We should conscientiously learn the important instructions made by Secretary General Xi Jinping on the prevention and control of novel coronavirus, dutifully observe the deployment of the CPC Central Committee and the Provincial Party Committee of Jiangsu, maintain the safety and stability of the campus, and do a good job in both the epidemic prevention and control and the School development. In the meanwhile, all faculty members at the meeting were required to keep strict guard on the ideological and political issues, to be a good teacher with four virtues, and to carry forward the cause of the School with topmost consciousness and greatest efforts.
