Charity Session : A New Interpreation of Charity and Public Welfare:

Teach People to Fish - Do good to the People of Wenzhou

Mr. Ye Zhengmeng, Security-General of Zhejiang Xinhu Charity Foundation





Summary of the Charity Lecture Series by Doris - 徐佳吟 Doris.


1.    Wrong charity methods will have adverse results. People who receive too much money will become dissatisfied and become evil, which called "Marginal effect of gratitude" or "the anger of loser." So choose appropriate donees is very important. There is a very important principle of choosing donees:

a. Focus more on giving to those who are temporarily short of money (e.g. people who suffer from disasters), not those who are desperately short of money.

b. An important saying: "One of the major obstacles to true and permanent goodness is undue giving."

c.  Undue giving will lead to two results:

                                          i.         Foster dependency

                                         ii.         could result in moral kidnapping

2.    How to teach poor people methods(授人以渔)in a systematic way?

a. These things include:

      i.         Inspire people with desire. We should let people realize the importance of good life and possibility of having good life. Show bright future to poor people. Communication with poor people and make reasonable business with them: for example, we give part of money to poor people, and poor people also need to invest some money or efforts.

     ii.         Teach people how to make money. Examples (emphasize the importance of teaching methods): 1. hire agricultural experts to teach poor farmers how to plant Cerasus humilis. 2. provide money for undergraduates to start up a business.

1) The greatest "method" is offering education.

   iii.         Provide some initial money to poor people to start their business.

   iv.         Relieve poor people's worries

1) Worries include:

a)  afraid that products cannot be sold successfully.

b)  afraid that the price of products will fluctuate.


3. Developing leadership is more useful than teaching all people methods.

a. Example: countryside CEO plan

      i.         Leaders are the most important. Develop leadership.

     ii.         Give leaders more knowledge, skills, and resources.

   iii.         Some detailed way to develop leaders:

                               1)  Courses learning

                               2)  Base on practice

                               3)  Future plan planning

                               4)  Paid on board learning

                               5)  Synchronous tracking guidance

                               6)  Induction competition

How To Write a Professional Business Email? (By Dr. Jerry Choi at WKU CBPM) 


Email is an important communication tool in business. 
For example, a business executive gets over 100 emails daily. 


But many do not write an email in a proper way.
A wrong form of Email makes a reader frustrated, and the sender cannot get what intended to.  

Harvard Business Review suggests the best practice of Business Email writing. 
Learning from the Military practice, Sehgal suggested three guidelines.
Here, I added two more guides for better Email writing in the real world. 

These five suggestions are…. 

First, Subjects with Keywords in the Title sentence
Second, Bottom Line Up Front - BLUF
Third, Be Economical - Bullet type is recommended
Fourth, Keep the structure,  containing 5W and 1H, Whom, Why, What Where, When, How
Fifth, clearly indicate who is the sender. 

With keeping these five suggestions, you can write this style of professional Email. 

In the title, you can clearly describe what is the purpose of your Email with a “Keyword”. 

In the first line, You can clearly indicate ”Whom” you are sending your Email to. 

Then, you can give the ‘Bottom Line’ of your Email. 

Providing background or details will help a reader to take action. 

Be polite, and please tell the receiver who is sending this Email and how to get you. 


This is it. 


Let’ keep these ‘Business Email Writing’ rules to make a professional communication.

The Year 2020 started with the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Everybody was suffered, and it was true. 


Wenzhou-Kean University international faculty members were not exceptions. They struggled to come back to campus. And they stayed on the campus since their arrival on campus. 


In Winter, no international faculty could go outside of Zhejiang province of China without special permission. 


Most of international faculty should stay at Wenzhou area in the gloomy winter. WKU HR, then, suggested and organized "Faculty Retreat" programs to culturalize and socialize international faculty members.

From the 2020 winter Faculty Retreat, Dr. Choi develop himself as a "New Media" expert through recording, archiving, and disseminating 'Wenzhou, China, Culture and Tradition" learning.

His archives are in the below website.

His new media contents are in the below Youtube channel.


Program 1 (Line 1) went to Hendgian Film making sites (Chinese Hollywood) and Hot spring at Wuyi in Zhejiang province.

Dear Colleagues:

Thank you for your commitment to delivering an excellent academic experience to our students during very challenging semesters.

 Kean University has adopted Interfolio as its faculty management system. Interfolio is a secure, online collaboration platform that provides customizable tools to manage all of the documents, workflows, data, committees, communication, and outcomes associated with review-based academic decisions. The first module being launched is Faculty Activity Reporting (Faculty 180) which is an online platform for faculty activity reporting that will assist in accreditation, other reporting analytics, and feed into all faculty evaluation processes (Retention and Tenure, Promotion, A328, Sabbatical, and Lecturer Evaluations). Please carefully complete the Faculty Activity Reporting module.

 Some additional benefits of this module include:

·         the creation of a central repository for current and past teaching, scholarship, and service contributions

·         the ability to create a personal vita template

·         the opportunity to enhance collaboration among fellow faculty

Resources and Support

Hi, Joy and Maria,

    I am trying to get familiar with the Interfolio and update my information. From the notice form VPAA office, the training of Faculty 180 is scheduled at 3:30pm on December 3, which is 4:30 am in China. WKU faculty and staff have to watch the recording of the training. The notice indicated that recording will be available in the Dashboard. I did not see a tab for training recording in my Dashboard. Will it be available after the training?

    What is the timeline for faculty to complete the Faculty 180?

    What platform will be used for lecturer evaluation that can pull information from Faculty 180?



The PURPOSE of Faculty Activity Report at 'CLOUD' service. 


Every year, Kean Faculty Members generally prepare more than 300 pages of Reappointment Application Packages that include Academic CV, Profile Information, Publications, and all relevant Faculty Activities. What if we can make the ARTP processes simple and easier at online with higher security? That is the idea of Kean's 'Going to Cloud' initiative of ARTP affairs. 


Aligning with the transformation to Online Faculty Activity Report for Appointment, Reappointment, Promotion, Tenure, Promotion (ARTP) and HR affairs, WKU CBPM Management, Global Business, and Marketing (MGM) faculty members proactively complying with the movement.


WKU VPAA Office guided us to complete the FAR Initial completion by End of 2020 Fall Semester ( December . 18, 2020) based on the communication with Kean USA. 



WKU CBPM MGM faculty members try to complete the initial inputs of FAR via Interfolio Faculty 180 platform by Dec. 18, 2020. 


Faculty Activity Report via InterFolio Faculty 180 Platform
 (Due, Dec. 18, 2020)


But the Due date for CBPM faculty members was postponed until the end of December 2020 at the CBPM faculty meeting on Dec. 08 because of time pressure of final grading.

2020.12.19: Faculty Activity Report (or Faculty 180)  Online Course Completion 

Faculty Activity Report: Training (Interfolio)



Key Terms: 


Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR)

Also known as Faculty180, Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR) is Interfolio's module that collects validated faculty data sets for accreditation, compliance, and seeing the full picture of faculty contributions at your institution.


An activity is anything a faculty member does that can be tracked as a record of their career for data collection and use cases like promotion, tenure, or annual reviews, grant applications, or supplementing public facing profiles. Generally, this describes some type of teaching, scholarship, service, or professional development – the core activities of university faculty.


A collection of sections to track data. There are two types of forms, profile and activity forms.

Profile Form

The Profile Form is the form that tracks personal information related to faculty user, such as contact information. Faculty control (most of) the data in this form through the FAR interface.

The Profile Form is always available under Profile on the navigation bar.

Activity Form

The Activity Form is the form that faculty enter their activities into during the year. It's configurable by an administrator at the client side, and is composed of sections.

There is one Activity Form that is always available under Activities on the navigation bar.


A section is a type of faculty activity information that a university wants to track, such as teaching, scholarship, or service. Sections are made up of fields.

Activity Classification

Activity Classifications are additional metadata tags that allow units to supplement the fields with other data they want to track. They can be used in multiple sections and can be set to only show for particular units. These classifications can appear on reports or CV templates or be used to filter a report or CV template down to the desired information before it is generated. They are also used in accreditation reports. Examples of Activity Classifications include Committee Role, Book Type, and Scholarly Type.

Vita Template

Vita Templates display the output of the faculty's activity reporting. They are a collection of sections from both the profile and activity forms.

Initiated Activity Input Form

While faculty members always have access to the Activities form on their menu toolbar, Administrators may ask for updates periodically. To make that easy for faculty members, they initiate a period of input for a particular time period. When a form is used as part of this request for information, that is the initiated activity input form. It will be linked from the Faculty Member’s Action Items until it is either completed or the period for input has ended.

Faculty Account

Full/part time faculty and, if applicable, professional staff who teach, have access to input data on the Profile and Activity Input Forms. (This may also include Deans or other higher level academic administrative positions.)

Support Account

Access to assist faculty in the process of data input on the Profile and Activity Input Forms and/or to run reports. This type of account is intended for users who serve in a support role, such as a member of the Institutional Implementation Team, IT resources, administrative assistants, student workers, etc.

Unit Administrator

Unit Administrators will generally have access to particular administrative functions for their specific unit.

Administrative rights can be added to either a support account or a faculty account.

System Administrator

The highest level administrator is responsible for the database configuration and general upkeep. Software administrators have the top permissions in the system. 



Profile Input:

Please input all your personal profile information. 


(Profile example #1) Personal Information


(Profile example #2) Work Experience;  Degrees




Activity Input:

Please input all your school and/or professional activities in each section: 




(Activity example #1) Teaching


Refresh your teaching tenure period, and input all course evaluation results in each item.  


(Activity example #2) Scholarly Contributions and Creative ProductionsTeaching

Creating Vitas & Biosketches

(CV Example #1) Annual Report for Annual Reappointment 



Only annual activities will be summarized in the newly created CV. 



Full Year Report can be created for Tenure application. 


Forms and Reports are not accessible up to now (Dec. 20, 2020)
