It is inevitable for mankind to face epidemics, and fighting epidemics is a part of human history. Faced with COVID-19, mankind will experience eras of epidemic, post-epidemic and non-epidemic. The characteristics of the post-epidemic era determine that human society in the post-epidemic era has dual characteristics with development and anti-epidemic. Thus, the missions of universities have new connotation in the post-epidemic era, and to realize these missions, universities need to: design the types of online education focusing on the combination of content and technology, ideas and methods, and interest and process; choose scientific research methods to conquer the epidemic, and develop drugs and vaccines that offer long-term protection; promote the healthy development of the society through precaution and counselling, early warning and emergency response, and prevention and control; build a path leading to a community with a shared future for mankind, and focus on its theory and practice. As a result, human will have more confidence and strength fighting the epidemic, and human civilization will have new vitality.
