Value orientation is an important concept in the philosophy of axiology. There is a natural close connection between higher education system and value orientation. The construction and selection of innovation mode of higher education system must be based on the promotion and guidance of certain value orientation. The value orientation of domestic higher education has mainly gone through two stages of "social standard" and "economic standard". Entering the new era, the innovation of higher education system should establish a "people-oriented" value orientation, clearly take the modern university spirit as the value pursuit, and take the university concept as the value source.
