The Connotation of University Teacher’s Dignity and Strategies to Safeguard It


The “dignity” of university teachers refers to the established and strengthened sense of self-respect. University teachers would have a sense of belonging and a sense of control when they are self-respected, self-dignified and constantly strive to be stronger. As the multi-cultural era makes the way knowledge is imparted and information is received unprecedentedly convenient, teachers are no longer the only source for students to obtain knowledge from. It is true that the loss and deterioration of dignity among university teachers is a fact facing us. In response to these problems, it is urgent to reshape and safeguard the dignity of university teachers. However, teachers, universities and government must work together before the dignity is reshaped and safeguarded as it is a systematic project.
