Commencement speech by President Qian Xuhong.
The last lesson of the Class of 2019.
At the commencement speech, ECNU President Qian Xuhong focused on how the young people in today's society should handle the integral relationships between individuals and groups in his speech: “Tempering the modern team spirit and creating unlimited possibilities for life”.
President Qian explained the relationship between individuals and families, under the traditional Chinese family system, and also analyzed the interpersonal relationships from the classical Chinese novels - Journey to the West, Water Margin and Romance of the Three Kingdoms - to highlight how individuals pursue their own independence upon entering a modern society.
President Qian further pointed to the graduates' abilities to develop themselves along the journey. First of all, it is essential to adjust to the relationships between the individual and the team by understanding both sides. Secondly, it is necessary to understand the personal positioning, division of labor and transitional roles in the team, and finally to deal with the overall goals of the team in a logical way.
