The President Venerable Master Guangquan also shared a few of his hopes with the faculty and students. First, he hoped that all members of the academy should raise their political awareness and distinguish between issues of understanding and thinking. Second, it is essential to set clear education objectives and strengthen discipline construction. Third, teacher workforce development should be enhanced and international cooperation and exchange in education should also be robustly bolstered. Fourth, great efforts must be made to cultivate Buddhist talents who are both experts in Buddhist teachings and traditional Chinese culture. Last but not least, it is important to empower the Buddhist academy with technology and intelligence and adapt to socialist modernization.
