To carry out the latter initiative, promote resource sharing, and give full play to the key disciplines of universities, the consortium decided to build global communities of ten disciplines, including law, economics, education, literature, history, science, engineering, medicine, agriculture, life sciences, and applied technology. China University of Political Science and Law (CUPL) became the Chinese lead of the global community of law. At the launch ceremony of the global communities of ten disciplines, Liu Limin granted a certificate to CUPL.
