Regarding the next step of the work and the main measures, Jiang Minghu pointed out in the report that in the face of the difficult situation, we should see the enormous challenges and the development opportunities and strengthen the confidence in development. After full deliberation, the School Party Committee decided to open the undergraduate education conference this academic year, which is to face challenges and difficulties directly, seize opportunities in challenges, seek revitalization amid responsibilities, and take the initiative to pick up obligations shoulder responsibilities and missions. All these will help us achieve the resurrection of the school's undergraduate education and promote the high-quality development of the school. We have to think about three questions at first: what is the value of NEPU's existence? What is the critical support of running NEPU? What is the position of undergraduate talent training goals? Second, we must run through the six persistence:
· Adhering to the overall leadership of the party.
· Adhering to the core position of undergraduate education.
· Adhering to student-centered.
· Adhering to quality development.
· Adhering to reform and innovation.
· Adhering to creating excellence by characteristics.
Third, we must implement four promotions: it is necessary to promote a change in educational ideology; promote the formation of undergraduate education characteristics; promote the construction of new engineering disciplines; and promote the dynamic adjustment of majors. Fourth, we must handle five relationships well; it is necessary to properly take the relationship between the high standard and pragmatic working; the relationship between teaching and learning; the relationship between education and scientific research; the relationship between strict management and great kindness; and the relationship between university and schools. Fifth, we must strengthen the four guarantees: it is necessary to strengthen organizational guarantees, policy guarantees, system and mechanism guarantees, and coordinated guarantees.

Sun Mingxue made a speech at the conference. He pointed out that this education conference is another significant measure to implement the spirit of the Party Congress. It has sounded the clarion call for the revitalization of undergraduate education and will surely usher in a new era of school education. On behalf of the School Party Committee, he put forward three opinions on implementing the spirit of the conference and doing an excellent job in educating students:
1. Improve political positions and implement the "Three Fundamentals." It is necessary to implement the fundamental issue of "what kind of person does education cultivate", implement the essential task of "fostering virtue through education," and implement the absolute guarantee of "strengthening the Party's overall leadership."
2. Strengthen the "Four persistence", centering on running schools and educating people. It is necessary to focus on the fundamental problems of running schools and educating people, the bottleneck problems that restrict the development of schools, and the critical problems of achieving high-quality products. We should adhere to the "Take Undergraduate Education as the Foundation", stick to the talent priority development strategy, adhere to the development of oil fields, and educate people by Daqing Spirit.
3. Focus on the three main forces of "cadres, teachers, and students" and highlight the "Three Grasps and Three Promotion".
We must grasp leadership, promote management, grasp teachers, promote education, capture students, and encourage growth.
(Sun Mingxue made a speech)
Sun Mingxue emphasized that through solid work measures, a good and complete system, and a pragmatic and efficient team implementation, let "students be busy, teachers be strengthened, management be strict, and the effect be real." We should do everything possible to raise the quality of education, create the influence of NEPU, and raise the ranking of our university.
Sun Mingxue pointed out that the conference passed the "Northeast Petroleum University Undergraduate Education Revitalization Action Plan," clarifying the school's undergraduate education construction blueprint and task, released the NEPU's plan for undergraduate education, and opened a new chapter in quality NEPU. The majority of cadres and teachers should unite as one, seize the opportunity and do actual practice and solid work guided by Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era. Under the correct leadership of the school's Party Committee. We should make undergraduate education excellent and extraordinary, make NEPU strong and bright, and provide a solid support for constructing a high-level centennial university with first-class undergraduate education!
