Message from President


Hello, and welcome to NCNU.

People make a university great. Nomatter who you are, a prospective student, current student, professor, researcher, staff member, graduate, parent, neighbor, or visitor, your interest and enthusiasm are valued and appreciated. Our vision is to be an internationally recognized university known for excellence in student learning, innovative research, and community engagement that contributes to the economic vitality, environmental sustainability, and quality of life in the Nantao region and beyond.

NCNU is a young school alive with possibilities. NCNU has not only young students but also many new coming teachers full of energy. NCNU’s educators devote themselves to promoting a balanced, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic development for students.

My educational philosophy is to enliven students’ energy, and promoting a balanced learning, cultivating a care mentality, and pursuing excellence in research. I devote myself to achieve the goals.

In recent years we particularly focus on two fields: Cultivating a positive collaborative relationships with local communities and beyond, and going global to work more closely with international communities. Toward that purpose NCNU established a few centers as platforms for faculty and students of NCNU work together to make close connections with Nantou via such center.


To pursue the goal of going International, NCNU has been striving to vie for and provide with more resources for our teachers and students to participate in academic exchange programs with foreign counterparts. Currently we have 102 sister universities across continents, and our students actively take advantage of these opportunities to advance their global experiences and international mobility.


With collective endeavors, NCNU has achieved some unprecedented high level of achievements, and has entered a stage. A new culture has been formed where teachers’ community to share and work together on campus has taken shape.


Again, I extend my warmest welcome and invitation for you to join NCNU. Wish you a pleasant and fruitful experience here.
