As a member of lecturer team of Hunan Province, Tang Yayang, the Secretary of Party Committee of Hunan University of Commerce is busy with explaining and publicizing the spirits of the 19th Session of National Congress of the CPC. A few days ago, a journalist interviewed him about carrying forward “Spirit of the Red Boat”. In his opinions, the “Spirit of the Red Boat”, as the cultural ore of colleges and universities when they enhanced their talent cultivation quality and scientific development level in the new era, was highly consistent with the topic of the 19th Session of National Congress of the CPC.

Literally, “Spirit of the Red Boat” is understood as red attribute and boat function in two perspectives. As we have often said “Chinese red”, red is the heritage of traditional culture and the symbol of enthusiastic, brave and vivifying Chinese nation. But, “red” hereby refers to the revolutionary tradition ofChina, namely, the original intention of Party founding, noble ideal and intrinsic political quality of Communist Party of China. Differing from vehicle, boat, as an image with abundant contents and carrier for sailing and arriving at the opposite bank, is faced with the larger risk and challenge in spite of its greater future because it depends on the water supporting, accurate heading and helmsman’s control. It can be said that red is steering soul and boat is methodological carrier in “Spirit of the Red Boat”.

Running through the Communist Party of China and carrying the strong national rejuvenation of Chinese nation, the “Spirit of the Red Boat” is toughly guaranteed in property and function with powerful fusion effect. Coupled with the spirit of Jinggangshan, the spirit of Long March, the spirit of Yan’an and Xibaipo spirit, the “Spirit of the Red Boat” is deemed as the mean gun, spiritual pillar and moral force of Chinese communists.

I believe that “Spirit of the Red Boat” and the topic of the 19th Session of National Congress of the CPC come down in one continuous line because it answers what banners are we to hold, what road to follow, what are the goals and what state of mind. Considering that the spirit has provided the clear value guidance and problem orientation and told you what to do and how to do, the “Spirit of the Red Boat” is a spiritual ore to enhance the talent cultivation quality and scientific development level

Grand age needs great spirit. In turn, the great spirit breeds the great youth. Compared with the hard mission, Tang Yayang believed that the contemporary university students were pressed for “Spirit of the Red Boat”----

The youth makes county stronger and youth prospers the county. According to the 19th Session of National Congress of the CPC, “struggle for fifteen years on the basis of basic modernization to builtChinainto a strong, prosperous, democratic, civilized, harmonious and beautiful strong socialism modernized country from 2035 to the middle of this century”. In such case, someone needs to work hard arduously. Counting on my fingers, 90s and 00s university students will be faced with tough tasks because they are in the prime of their life at that period.

In spite of good overall situation, the contemporary university students also have deficiencies, such as, weak sense of direction, and misunderstanding of red and black, mainstream and individual; easily touched intention, inadequate pioneering and gumption; narrow field of vision, indulge in themselves and down-to-earth shortage, etc. With the strong plasticity, some youth are in urgent need of “Spirit of the Red Boat”.

The “Spirit of the Red Boat” is the source of spirit of Communist Party of China and the starting point of Chinese youth’s dedication to the revolution. The representatives of the 1st National Congress of the CPC are young people who are 27 years old. After 96 years, “Spirit of the Red Boat” is also nourishing the new people in this era.

I. Inject the red gene and insist on the red belief. The independent development of Chinese nation and harmonious happiness of Chinese people are realized at the cost of dauntless fight of Chinese people under the leading of Communist Party of China. Therefore, we could not abandon the red original intention, forget the red hero, give up the red gene and throw away the red belief. II. Keep the ideal and faith and raise the fighting spirit. Faced with the unprecedented opportunity and challenge, this generation of youth will get a new life only when they adhere to and inspire the pioneering spirit, struggling spirit and dedication spirit contained by “Spirit of the Red Boat” and undertake their mission in full spirits. III. Insist on the people-centered spirit to strengthen the “serve the people” mood, take root in people to absorb energy, as well as serve the people to be sublimated.

Hunan University of Commerce pays special attention to the concept education, therefore, it has cultivated a batch of new people in this era and the atmosphere about responsibility, dedication and accountability become common practice: “Most Beautiful Hunan Girl” Xiao Xia, who looks after the widows of expeditionary forces for 20 years; “2016 National Top Ten Educational News Figures” Tao Ruqin, who enters into lepriasis rehabilitation village to accompany the sick old men; “Good Person of Hunan Province” Xu Shoubao, who saves the drowning father and daughter with his wisdom in Orange Island, as well as “Xiao Xia” Devotion Team, free tutoring “Come on After School”, “Free Hugs” of wheelchair girl, “Hanerle” team supported by dysgnosia employment and so on.

Tang Yayang said that the organic integration between “Spirit of the Red Boat” and ideological political work of colleges and universities would be a giant leap in China’s higher education theory innovation after he has worked on the ideological political work for students for 30 years---

The task of colleges and universities is to set high moral values and cultivate person. Therefore, I am always thinking how to closely combine the related practice with the future and destiny of state nation.

I have extended my thought of “Spirit of the Red Boat” when the 19th Session of National Congress of the CPC was held: I. Put the talent cultivation concept, path and evaluation system of higher education in the visual field where the construction of strong socialism modernized country makes a demand for talents who combine ability with political integrity in the new era for new deliberation and reasonable optimization; II. Include Chinese revolutionary tradition education and Party history education in the ideological and political education course system to strengthen the value leadership and make an impression on heart and brain; III. Try to build the ideal and faith education base with “university-government-society” coordinated innovation; IV. Make full use of big data, mobile internet and other emerging technologies to set up the red value transmission carrier.

Since the year 2013, our university has established the state governing “Mechanics Institutes” and students’ theory league, namely, “State Governing Thought Learning Club” and held the preaches for more than 500 times in rural areas, enterprises, schools and communities. We are well received by the mass; meanwhile, all participating students are also practiced and enhanced. They exclaimed that: “a thousand learning and reading are not as good as a countryside movement”. We will move forward on that basis and try to become the firm believer, positive spreader and model practitioner of “Spirit of the Red Boat”.
