BEIJING, Jan. 4 (Xinhua) — Vice President Xi Jinping Wednesday stressed efforts to arm university students with socialist core values through the reinforcement of on-campus Communist Party of China (CPC) organizations.

Xi, a member of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, made the remark while meeting delegates to a national meeting on party-building in higher education institutions.

Describing universities as a key ideological front for equipping young people with socialist values, Xi said on-campus party-building should aim to cultivate qualified builders and reliable successors for China’s socialist cause

Xi said ideological and political work concerning university faculty should be improved, as their morals and qualities exert a gradual and imperceptible influence on students.

He also urged greater efforts to encourage young university teachers to join the CPC.
