Abstract

The rule of law is the key and only way for universities to promote the modernization of the institutional system. This paper takes 102 universities in China as research samples to investigate the current situation of the construction of institutional systems in Chinese universities from the perspective of the rule of law. While some achievements have been made, there are also some problems: the "legislative law" in some universities are not sound enough, the rank relationship is not clear enough, the deliberation subject has overstepped powers, and the completeness of the system construction procedure needs to be improved. On the basis of analyzing the reasons, this paper believes that the institutional system of universities from the perspective of the rule of law can be improved in the following ways: to insist on using the rule of law thinking and method to build the university system, to establish and improve the "legislative law" in the university, to do a good job in the top-level design and planning of the university system, to clarify the powers and responsibilities of decision-making subjects in universities, and to establish and improve the supervision mechanism for the construction of the university system.
