2018 New Year Message

2017-12-31

On the occasion of this New Year, on behalf of the Party Committee and Administration of Henan University, we would like to express our sincere thanks and send the best wishes for the New Year to all teachers, staffs and students, retired veteran comrades, alumni at home and abroad and people from all walks of life who have long been concerned about and supported the development of Henan University.

On September 20th, 2017, approved by the State Council, the Ministry of Education and other two ministries officially announced the lists of the “Double First-rate” universities and disciplines. Henan University entered the ranks of first-rate discipline universities, while the Biology was selected in the list of first-rate disciplines. This is a great achievement of 105 years’ running history of Henan University. It has realized the dream of Henan University for returning to the “national team” of higher education for a hundred years, fully opening the new journey of the construction of the first-rate university in the new era.

Over the past year, Henan University has been promoting the construction of world-class discipline university. The comprehensive strength of disciplines has been significantly enhanced; the foundation of high-level talents is more abundant; the strength of scientific research continues to rise; the high level innovation platform has made important breakthroughs; and infrastructure construction has been steadily advancing. After one year’s efforts, the foundation of Henan University to build a first-rate discipline university is more solid.

In 2018, we will take the Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era as guidance, promoting the great cause of the construction of first-rate disciplines, striding forward on the way of constructing the world first-class, the Central Plains style, and HENU characteristics first-rate discipline university!

Finally, we sincerely wish teachers, staffs, students, alumni and friends success in business, academic progress, happiness and well-being in the coming new year!
