Abstract
"Double First-Class" construction needs first-class university presidents. The standardized system of selecting and appointing university presidents can promote excellent university presidents and promote their professional development. This paper is to review the selection system of university presidents in recent ten years from 2007 through analyzing comprehensively the research of selecting standards, selecting methods and the program and tenure by literature analyzation. The research of selecting standards includes studying their personal characteristics, educational background, working experience and decision-managing abilities. The research of selecting methods is mainly from the perspective of country reference, which can be summarized in the following three: the selection system represented by the USA and Britain, the two-stage system represented by Japan and European countries and the central appointment system represented by our country. The research of the tenure of university presidents mainly focuses on the employment period and relative factors which influence the tenure. It turns out that the selecting standards of the university presidents in our country are to be improved; the selecting methods and program lack flexibility; the tenure is comparatively short; and the degree of specialization is to beehanced compared with other countries.
