Less Bureaucracy, Less Corruption in Universities
(The Central Committee of the Jiu San Society)
University teachers and their academic research should be respected, and the administrative units of a university should provide service to academic units. The administrative rank of universities should be removed, and the way university presidents are selected should be changed. University leaders should not only be accountable to supervisory government departments, but also to teachers and students. Universities should be managed democratically; teachers' performance evaluation system should be reformed so corruption can be wiped out and teachers can fully devote themselves to teaching and research.
Regulations on faculty and staff representative meetings and academic committees should be enacted, to give more power to faculty and staff representatives and the academic committee. Faculty and staff representative meetings should be held regularly and important decisions related to schools must be approved at meetings before being put into practice.
Universities should release basic information and relevant reports, and accept the supervision of teachers, students and society.
