More party control over China’s colleges

China’s president has called for the Communist Party’s leadership over the country’s universities to be enhanced in a continuing tightening of ideological controls across a wide range of society.

Xi Jinping said higher learning institutions should publicise Marxism, one of the theoretical foundations of the Party, and enhance ideological guidance, the official Xinhua News Agency reported yesterday.

“Enhancing (party) leadership and party-building in the higher-learning institutions is a fundamental guarantee for running socialist universities with Chinese features well,” Xi was quoted as saying.

Xi issued the instruction during a two-day meeting on party building in higher-learning institutions.
