The College also tries to contribute to the rural development of Guizhou. The party's 19th National Congress developed the Rural Revitalization Strategy. This strategy is a major historical task for building a well-off society and a modernized, comprehensive, socialist country. It is also the priority for the project of solving issues concerning "Agriculture, Rural Areas and Farmers” in the new era. The strategy is a long-time effort to fully revitalize the rural areas and solve inadequate imbalances in development in rural areas.

This will provide a talent pool for the work of “poverty alleviation” and "rural revitalization."
The College will further deepen education reform, focus on innovation and development so that it can make due contributions to the strategy of “revitalizing Guizhou through talent training" and the plan of "building a knowledge-based society."
