Research in the Implication of Youth’s Intrinsic Characteristics on Civic Education of Colleges and Universities



The intrinsic characteristics of the youth are manifested in the unity of these three aspects: the naturalness of “dramatical change”, the practicality of “progressive improvement” and the sociality of “increasing maturity”. Given these particular characteristics, colleges and universities, in the process of civic education, are demanded to establish “human-oriented” concepts of education, namely, respect college students and properly cope with natural essences of their dramatically change, and to develop their awareness of independence, their spirit of exploration and their ability of practice, promoting their gradual improvements in practice. Moreover, it is required to help to identify undergraduates’ roles and reasonable goals for their life, comprehend skills in production and living, grasp social norms, leading them, with increasing social maturity, to be social members qualified for social requirements in a smooth way.
