He said, it is an important task implemented and guaranteed by the university all the time to select excellent youth graduate students to go to the west and integrate their individual youth and ideals into the national strategy of west development. Over the years, the university has emphasized on pragmatism and innovation, constantly deepen the concept of volunteer services, expand the approaches of volunteer services, and make great efforts to build the western plan to be a demonstration project, which would guide graduates to render meritorious services and become a useful person in the western grassroots posts, and a brand project of the university with far-reaching influences in terms of volunteer services.

Prof. Yuan deeply enjoined the student volunteers going for Tibet and Xin Jiang Uygur Autonomous Region: first, remembering your original dream. Keeping to the original aspiration leads one to success and becoming a useful person with the grass-roots practice . During the youth time, should you bear more hardships, you would make the achievements unacccomplished by others. Prof. Yuan encouraged all volunteers to give full play to their glamour and intelligence; second, remembering to read and learn diligently, keeping on thinking, winning through innovation, and dedicating the youth and wisdom to the masses. At work, the volunteers should diligently study, like to think, learn from the grassroots and the masses, and pay attention to the accumulation of knowledge and capabilities, all of which will in turn constantly improve personal cultivation and spiritual realm. In practicing services, volunteers should enhance the simple feelings with the local masses , and do more practical work and good things for them in a down-to-earth manner. Third, always remembering the responsibility, being willing to give, and manifesting the life value with no regrets by cultivating moral integrity and making honest people. The volunteers should insist in highlighting the ideals without discarding the ordinaries and tiny things, and realize the sublimation of their life by constant moral practice, serving others and making contributions to society.

Prof. Yuan told the volunteers in an affectionate manner, “please keep in heart the expectations upon you of the almamater and improve yourselves constantly. Should you make some achievements, let your almamater be informed; keep in heart the almamater’s concern upon you and make ceaseless self-improvement. Should you encounter some setbacks, remember that the almamater will always stand up for you. When you are in need, resort to your almamater! As your almamater, QAU will be proud of your firm choice.”

In the meanwhile, he also expressed their determination to throw themselves into the west and dedicate their youth there.

During the past 13 years when the Western Plan was implemented since 2003, a total of 168 students have responded to the call of government to go to the west of the country, and have made significant contributions to the improvement of the western economic and social development at the local level.
