Govt goes to public in search of college heads (2)

In this round of recruitment, the ministry adapted requirements for candidates that focused on two things: the candidates must have rich experience in management of high-level universities and possess administrative skills, and they have to guarantee their complete immersion in university management once they are selected.

Currently, China has 76 universities affiliated with the Ministry of Education. Presidents and deans in these universities have administrative rankings corresponding to official levels in the ministry. And almost all university presidents were designated by the ministry or by the Organization Department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee.

"The new requirement means that once they are selected as university presidents, they have to quit their own scientific research, and dedicate themselves to university affairs full time," said Xiong Bingqi, deputy director of the 21st Century Education Research Institute.

"The new requirements reflect the ministry's purpose in recruiting the university presidents publicly - the ministry officials want our universities to have professional presidents who are impervious to the influence of administrative power," he said.
