Over the past century, the Communist Party of China(CPC) has always been placing Party history education in colleges and universities in an important position against different historical backgrounds, era tasks, and social environment, which has provided spiritual support for promoting social development and realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. In the process of carrying out Party history education in colleges and universities, the CPC has always adhered to the guiding principle of Marxism, closely combined with the development background of the times, and promoted Party history education, Marxist theory education, and ideological and political theory courses simultaneously, which has achieved remarkable results in promoting educational practice. In this process, the CPC has gradually accumulated rich leadership experience of summing up the basic experience of holding the flag and orientation, ideological guidance, and keeping pace with the times, adhering to the Party's comprehensive leadership, and strengthening the education in ideals and beliefs, firmly taking the social and historical tasks as the direction and guide, and integrating Party history education into the whole process of education practice in colleges and universities. In the new era, political guidance should be strengthened in the education of Party history in colleges and universities with a focus on theoretical basis for a historical thinking, constantly adhering to the unity of politics and science for a solid foundation of Marxist view of history, and scientifically grasping the relationship between experience and lessons to provide practical implications for the development and reform of Party history education in colleges and universities.
