WELCOME & INTRODUCTION
International College, its present and future
2016 marks another memorable year for the burgeoning International College of Tunghai University. Our pioneering program, the International Business Administration Program (IBA), welcomed it newest class of excellent talents from all over Taiwan and other parts of the world. The program continues to grow not only in its academic standing, but also in the diversity of the students’ background. This is truly important to the mission of the International College, because through intercultural communication students learn to stimulate new ideas from diverse perspectives while respecting each other’s differences – a good way to “disrupt the status quo” in Taiwan’s higher education. Our second program, the Sustainability Science and Engineering (SSE), also welcomed its very first class. Through working with the IBA students and the mentors of the International College, the SSE students have already made a remarkable stride in
In only three years since Tunghai University launched the International College, we believe that our programs have been constantly improving and approaching the goals that we set at the very beginning of this new College. Aside from the English-immersion programs, we also emphasize providing diverse international-learning opportunities and liberal arts education, to our domestic and international students alike. One of the major reasons for the significant strides that we made is the committed effort from the mentors whom we invited every year from American universities. They have immensely helped bridging the faculty and the students in the communicating the expectations, values, and thoughts from both sides of the classroom.
The International College will continue to make major contributions to the internationalization of education in Tunghai University. The heritage of this University facilitates us to build our programs on the liberal arts approach with different concentrations – the only of its kind in Taiwan’s international education. New programs are to be launched in the coming years as the International College continues to be an integral part of the future of Tunghai University.
Through the dedicated work by all members of our College, I look forward to another productive year in 2017 and beyond.
