At the beginning of the event, professor Lian Xin sent her best wishes to the students and staff members. Professor Wang Jianyi said that it’s meaningful to bring these cultural treasures into universities. She suggested that the university should open courses about regional, intangible, cultural heritages, and organize more activities to promote them and attract more students to enjoy the charm of these heritages. During the event, Li Chunhui promised to promote intangible cultural heritages across the campus by including them into general education.

It is reported that IMNU's Development Research Center of the Cultural Industry has established a club of intangible cultural heritages, leading the way of promoting the heritages among regional universities.
