Domain Ontological Dimension of Implementing Higher Education with Chinese Characteristics: Topic-Oriented Policy Perspective

Part of the Perspectives on Rethinking and Reforming Education book series (PRRE)


Since the reform and opening up, the course of exploring the connotation of higher education with Chinese characteristics has witnessed the development process of modern socialist soft power with Chinese characteristics. The connotation of higher education with Chinese characteristics is multidimensional—the management system of institutions of higher learning under the leadership of the Party committee; the higher education for the all-around development of the talents of higher education in the universities, quality education and the all-around development of the beauty of virtue and the beauty of the body; the construction of the institutions of higher education in accordance with the state management mechanism. The internal management mechanism is the higher education of the general education curriculum and teaching system based on the political and historical culture of Chinese characteristics, the classical Chinese history and culture, the Chinese Marx doctrine as the main content, and the coexistence of the social institutions of higher learning with the public institutions of higher learning as the main, the private higher institutions as the auxiliary, and the various forms of social higher education.
