The 8th World Women University Presidents Forum opened on April 8 at Wuhan University, lasting for three days.

The World Women University Presidents Forum was initiated by the Communication University of China in August 2001. It has successfully hosted seven main forums and nine sub-forums in 17 years with attendance of more than 1,100 women university presidents from over 100 countries and regions in the world.

This time, more than 150 women university presidents and experts hailing from over 50 countries and regions gathered in Wuhan to hold in-depth exchanges on topics such as education in the future, new leadership and the community of destiny for humanity.

At the opening ceremony, 12 university presidents were granted the lifetime honorary award for world women university presidents, a prize reserved only for presidents over 70 years old who have worked for a long time in the field of higher education and contributed to the development of the forum.
