多年来,海内外校友以情系母校、薪火传承的精神推动中国科大发展。早在1995 年,海外校友开创性发起了完全由志愿者运作的组织——中国科大海外校友基金会(简称USTCAF)。USTCAF 以民主、透明的模式尝试校友基金的努力,在海内外校友享有盛誉。

2006 年,中国科大校友新创基金会(简称新创基金会)开始运作。作为USTCAF 的传承与发

展,新创基金会团队正以实质性资助,在招生与学生培养、师资队伍建设等关键方向力促科

大发展做出有力尝试。新创基金会的郭沫若奖学金、口述校史、招生专项基金、“新创讲席

教授”等项目部分初见成效。新创基金会代表专业团队,通过可操作途径筹集校友基金的崭

新实践。

2008 年,改革开放走过三十年光辉历程;同时中国科学技术大学即将迎来创办五十周年大

庆。“科教报国五十年”,中国科大书写了一部坎坷与荣耀交织的传奇。喜庆之时,出席苏

州会议的各地校友会代表一致同意,全球校友为中国科大建立统一、专业的校友基金的时机

已基本成熟。出席苏州会议的各地校友组织代表一致同意并呼吁:

品牌出现,以便在条件成熟时多方面拓展资金来源,争取成长为教育基金会,参与中国未来

可期望之教育改革,迎接中国科大新的五十年。

2)中国科学技术大学校友基金会由各地校友组织民间发起,以专业团队运作,与中国科学

技术大学保持“合作但独立”的关系。

3)出席苏州会议的校友组织是中国科学技术大学校友基金会的倡议发起方。倡议发起方负

责人或代表在2008 6 8 日草签苏州宣言。各倡议发起方将以理事会(或决策机构)通过决议文形式正式签署苏州宣言;

凡在此基金会正式成立前签署苏州宣言的校友组织和代表,均视为发起方,我们热诚

邀请海内外的中国科学技术大学各地校友会加盟发起方,共襄盛举。

4)中国科学技术大学校友基金会的宗旨为:推动中国科学技术大学创办世界一流大学的进

程;有效促进中国教育体系变革,重塑中国大学精神。
