Dear friends and students,


Upholding the principle of Sino-Australian integrated and characteristic education, Haide College, Ocean University of China (OUC), is willing to leverage education strengths of both sides, highlight unique global features of ocean, adopt cultivation mode of joint connection, in order to foster high-level interdisciplinary talents with a sense of patriotism and an global perspective. Nowadays, Haide is making steady progress in enhancing students' ability of intercultural communication, interdisciplinary integration, logical thinking and innovative ability.

According to the Report to the 20th National Congress of the CPC, education, technology, and talents are the fundamental and strategic support for the comprehensive construction of the modern socialist country.

Therefore, I would like to express my sincere hope here for you:

To be patriotic and responsible. If the young are strong, so will be our country. Students should cherish matters of national significance, revitalize the nation and serve as men of tremendous promise in the future.

To be of international vision and lofty aspirations. Students should see the world with a wider view, meet the world with more open mind and integrate with the world with more inclusive heart, in order to contribute to the human community with a shared future for mankind.

To be of integrity and confidence.  It takes ten years to grow a tree, but a hundred years to educate a person. It is hoped to behave yourself with high standards, plan your career with high goals, and temper yourself with high quality. You are appreciated to lay equal stress on morality and conducts to achieve all-round and balanced development.

To be diligent in research and cautious in thought. Learning is like rowing upstream, not to advance is to drop back. Students should adhere to professional ideals, consolidate knowledge foundation, explore the forefront of knowledge and cultivate independent research thinking.

Youth is prosperous and struggle is at the right time. Students should live up to the promise of your youth and the expectations of our times. It’s hoped to keep the edification of President Xi -- staying confident, building strength, upholding fundamental principles, breaking new ground, forge ahead with enterprise and fortitude. We all should devote ourselves to our society and people, in pursue of the sublimation of our life!
