Established in 1989, Yuan Ze University may be young by traditional standards, yet it has been recognized as a model for newly emerging universities within the shortest period. As the first and the only university to win the National Quality Award in 2003, Yuan Ze received an award from the Ministry of Education for the Teaching Excellence Project in 2005. Successively, it has been designated by the MOE as one of the top 12 universities in Taiwan, receiving an award for the “Aim for the Top University and Elite Research Center Development Project” since 2005. Granted with the highest honor in teaching, research and administration, Yuan Ze has become a marvel of higher education, in Taiwan.
Giving top priority to students in the areas of teaching and counseling, Yuan Ze emphasizes education in both creativity and ethics. Moreover, we are active in the nation’s pioneering “Classics 50 Reading Project,” “YeSir Mentorship Program” and promote all types of activities that will enrich students’ extracurricular studies. Founded by the Far Eastern Group, we have established close relationships with all of its subsidiaries to form an industrial and academia alliance. The internship plan for both domestic and international students can be fully realized through such a network. Based on the unique niche Yuan Ze has created, we provide added value to students and faculty members and expect ourselves to be the benchmark university in industry-academia collaboration.
The main theme of the University’s development strategy emphasizes differentiation and internationalization. Through differentiation in curriculum design and research, we will create our distinguishing characteristics and brand; while in recruiting outstanding foreign faculty and potential international students with provision of favorable packages and scholarships/fellowships. The International Language and Culture Center offers Mandarin and cultural programs for international students; hosts various cultural activities; and promotes cultural exchange on campus.
As the youngest and most energetic university of Taiwan’s Top universities, we will continue to fully utilize our competitive advantages of “innovation,” “quality,” and “flexibility.” We provide a challenging environment for students to enjoy learning, develop their potentials and surpass themselves; for faculty to devote themselves to inspiring and mentoring their students and the pursuit of truth and academic excellence; and for staff to promote the quality of service and fulfill personal growth.
