辽宁大学校长程伟教授在亚澳商学院建院十周年庆典大会上讲话

           

 

尊敬的代理名誉校长福戈女士,校长哈曼女士,尊敬的教育部国际司副司长于继海先生,尊敬的辽宁省教育厅党组书记、常务副厅长李树森先生,尊敬的各位老师、同学,尊敬的各位校友,女士们、先生们:

    今天,我们怀着十分喜悦的心情聚集在这里,共同庆祝辽宁大学亚澳商学院建院10周年。我们亲密的合作伙伴澳大利亚维多利亚大学,组成了以名誉校长福戈女士和校长哈曼女士为首的10人代表团专程前来参加亚澳商学院建院10周年庆典。首先,请允许我代表学校全体师生,对远道而来的维大代表团的各位贵宾和朋友表示热烈的欢迎和衷心的感谢!对应邀专程前来参加庆典的教育部国际司和辽宁省教育厅的领导表示热烈的欢迎和衷心的感谢!对亚澳商学院校友代表的光临表示热烈的欢迎和衷心的感谢!
    亚澳商学院始建于1999年,那是一个世纪之交的重要的历史时段。生产要素在全球范围内的自由流动空前加快,世界各国各地区的生产分工与合作空前深入,经济全球化业已成为新世纪的时代潮流。也正是在此时,中国高等教育进入大改革大发展的历史新阶段。在这种背景之下,辽宁大学开始认真思考面向21世纪的发展目标、战略构想以及实施路径。在整体规划的构建中我们认为,一个重要的方面就是积极寻求国际上的优质教育资源,开展人才培养的跨国合作,以期培养出适应经济全球化时代要求的新型人才。
    辽宁大学与维多利亚大学拥有共同的理想和共同的追求,这使我们很快走到了一起,亚澳商学院应运而生。从两校开始接触共商建立与发展亚澳商学院大计之日起,我们的一个共同定位就是追求卓越,追求永远。现在,10年过去了,可以认为,我们的共同追求毋庸置疑地实现了。10年来,亚澳商学院以改革为伴,与创新同行,从小到大,由弱到强,破茧而出,化蛹成蝶,结出累累硕果,放射出耀眼的光芒。她不仅在沈阳、在墨尔本家喻户晓;而且在整个中国和整个澳大利亚也颇具名气;甚至,她在全球范围内也在显示出愈来愈大的知名度和影响力。
    10年来,亚澳商学院不断更新办学理念,拓宽发展视野,瞄准面向全球化的培养目标,不断加强教学质量、教学管理的规范化、制度化和国际化建设,培养出一批又一批拥有系统专业理论知识、熟练运用外语、具备从事专业理论研究与实际操作技能、适应经济全球化并满足经济建设与社会发展需要的国际化、复合型高端人才。亚澳商学院取得的卓越成绩,主要取决于以下四个方面的因素。
    第一,取决于两国政府以及教育和行业主管部门的大力支持。中澳两国的友好关系源远流长,经济、贸易、投资等领域的合作不断加深。与此同时,两国政府以及教育和行业主管部门对亚澳商学院一贯高度重视,大力支持,从而保证了亚澳商学院的顺利审批和健康发展。
    第二,取决于辽大和维大两校管理层的精诚合作。10年间,两校管理层的互访频繁,真诚沟通,相互尊重,始终本着“诚信合作、互惠双赢、共谋发展”的理念携手共进。维大是辽大最好的朋友,是辽大最为密切的合作伙伴。大家都还会记得,去年,也是在这个礼堂,我们隆重举行了辽宁大学60周年庆典。在庆典大会上代表海外所有高校发表祝词的唯一代表不是别人,就是维大的校长哈曼女士。
    第三,取决于两校教师的努力工作。维大在辽大先后任教的教师数10人,他们个个具有极强的责任心,具有高尚的职业道德,具有丰富的教学经验,具有高超的授课艺术。他们在课堂上是学生的良师,在课下是学生的益友。他们的面容有时是严厉的,有时是微笑的,但让学生们感受到的总是可亲可敬。为亚澳商学院授课的辽大教师也都是精选的,他们为亚澳商学院学生的培养同样作出了重要的贡献。
    第四,取决于亚澳商学院学生的刻苦学习。亚澳的学生从入校的第一天起就接受用英文授课,学习的难度不言而喻,需要更多的付出。令我们欣慰的是,亚澳的学生面对困难却不惧怕困难,用自己的刻苦学习交上了使学校、使家人、使社会满意的答卷。如今,亚澳的毕业生有的在国内外的名校继续深造,有的在国内外的工作岗位上贡献自己的聪明才智。亚澳的学生以辽大和维大为荣,辽大和维大更以亚澳的学子为荣。
    中国高等教育实现现代化,必须放眼全球化,立足本土化。亚澳商学院10年的建设与发展,就是我校教育改革与发展放眼全球化、立足本土化进而实现现代化的有益探索和成功实践。10月15日,维多利亚大学在澳大利亚隆重举行了亚澳商学院建院10周年庆典,今天,我们辽宁大学在中国再一次把庆典活动推向高潮。通过举办亚澳商学院建院10周年庆典,我们共同总结过去,审视现在,放眼未来。过去的10年已经成为辉煌的历史,从现在起,我们要更加努力地工作,使亚澳商学院在今后成长和壮大得更加辉煌与灿烂。
    我由衷地希望,亚澳商学院的学生继续弘扬辽宁大学“明德精学、笃行致强”的校训精神,继续秉承维多利亚大学严谨的校风与学风,怀揣美好的愿望,一直保持飞翔的姿态,为中澳两国的友好交流、为全世界的共同发展和共同繁荣谱写出更加耀眼的青春乐章。

最后,预祝本次庆典活动取得圆满成功!祝愿辽大、维大两校的合作与友谊地久天长!

 

Professor Cheng Wei
President of Liaoning University
Keynote Address at AABC’s Tenth
Anniversary Celebration
Chongshan Campus, Shenyang, China
November 21, 2009

 

Respected Acting Chancellor Foggo, President Harman,
Respected Director of Department of International Cooperation and Exchanges of Ministry of Education, Mr. YU Ji Hai,
Respected Director of Liaoning Provincial Education Bureau, Mr. LI Shu Sen,
Respected staffs and students,
Dear Alumni,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

 

Today we are full of joys and gathering here to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Asia-Australia Business College of Liaoning University. Victoria University’s 10 members delegation headed by Acting Chancellor Foggo and President Harman makes a special trip for the celebration. Let me begin by offering warmest welcome and earnest appreciation on behalf of Liaoning University system to honorable guests and friends coming here all the way from VU. I also want to extend warm welcomes and appreciations to leaders from Department of International Cooperation and Exchanges of Ministry of Education,Liaoning Provincial Education Bureau, and alumni of AABC.

AABC was established in 1999, an important moment at the turn of the century, while globalization shaped into the trend of the new millenium with unprecedented accelaration of production resources mobility, labor division and collaborations among nations. Meanwhile, China’s higher education entered into a new historical stage with dramatic transformation and development. At that time, Liaoning University began to think over its goals, strategy, and implementation pathes into the 21st century. We believed that an important part of the whole blueprint should be searching for qualified international education resources helping with joint cooperation programs to cultivate new types of talents adapting to globalization.

Victoria University embraces common goals and values with Liaoning University. We came together and gave the birth to AABC. Since the first days when two universities met and discussed the founding and expansion of AABC, one of common visions is pursuing excellence and sustainability. Now we can say, a decade later, this common vision has been reached beyond doubt. In a decade, AABC has been dynamic, enlarged and enhanced. It rushed out of the cocoon and turned into a butterfly unfolding its beauty. AABC emerges as a well-known sino-foreign joint-running institute not only in Shenyang, China, but also Melbourne, Australia. It even has certain awarenesses and impacts in the world.

In the past decade, AABC keeps updating its education philosophy, exploring new horizons, improving quality, and standardizing teaching management policies, rules with international level. It produces graduates with professional knowledge, English proficiency, practical skills to conduct researches and commit to economic and social development.

In my opinion, there are four factors leading to AABC’s outstanding performance.

Firstly, vigorous supports from both governments and education administrations. The history of Sino-Australia friendship has been long. In mutual ongoing cooperations for economy, trade, and investment, AABC has been highly valued and supported by both governments and education administrations. They provide smooth approvals and growth guarantees for AABC.

Secondly, effective partnerships of the managements of VU and Liaoning University. In the past decade, we witness frequent exchanges of visits, sincere communications, mutual respects of both managements. VU and Liaoning University has been sticked to the principles of “ Honesty and Integrity, Reciprocity and Development” to help each other forward. VU is our best friend and the closest partner. Let us recall, it was in this hall that we celebrated the 60th anniversary of Liaoning University last September. It was not any other but President Harman that represented all over-seas institutions to address the celebration.

Thirdly, great commitments of staffs. Several dozens of VU staffs visited and taught in AABC in the past decade. Each of them has a strong sense of responsibility and professional ethics. They have excellent teaching arts and enriched experiences. Inside the classrooms they are good teachers while outside the classroom they are helpful friends for students. Sometimes they smile, sometimes they are serious. And they always gain loves and respects from students. Those Staffs of Liaoning University teaching at AABC are carefully selected and also make important contributions to this program.

Fourthly, efforts of AABC students. Since the first day of the program, students are offered English-spoken courses. These courses are difficult and require more inputs of students. We are relieved by the facts that students confront challenges and satisfy Liaoning University and VU, families, and communities with hard-workings and good academic performances. Some of AABC’s graduates are pursuing for higher degrees in domestic or overseas famous universities. Others are making full uses of their skills and wisdom in workplaces all over the world. On one hand, AABC students are proud of their memberships of Liaoning University and VU community. On the other hand, the two universities are proud of AABC students.

To modernize China’s higher education, we must think globally and act locally. A decade of development of AABC is an initial experience and successful practice of Liaoning University’s reforming and developing with the vision of globalization and modernization based on localization. On the 15th of this October, Victoria University held a grand celebration for the tenth anniversary of AABC in Melbourne. Today, Liaoning University is holding the ceremony to push the celebration to another high. Through celebrating the 10th anniversay of AABC, we take a stock and look ahead. The past decade becomes a glorious history. We should work harder since then to grow AABC stronger.

I sincerely hope AABC students keep forward the spirit of Liaoning University and inherit the academic traditions of Victoria University and keep on going for your better future to contribute to the friendship of Sino-Australia and world prosperity.

I wish a complete success of the celebration! I wish the partnership between Liaoning and Victoria University keeps forever! Thanks!
