History of NUU
Due to the country’s rapid development of industries, former Minister of Economic Affairs, Mr. Li Guo-Ding, called upon private and state-own corporations to join in the funding of a higher education institution in the Hsin-Chu and Miao-Li areas in June 1969, with the objective of developing a middle-level technical workforce. A site was chosen in the Miao-Li region, where there was a shortage of higher education institutions at the time. The Board of Directors was set up, and Mr. Jin Kai-Ying was invited to take the position of the Chairman of the Board.
After the site was chosen, Minister Sun Yun-Xuan delegated the construction work to the Committee of National Corporations. The College was completed under the supervision and management of Mr. Zhang Guang-Shi and Xu Li-De. The first college president, Mr. Chen Wei-Zhong, was called upon to assist in setting up the college. The school, then a two-year private junior college, started its first semester in September 1972. This college was the only higher education institution in the Miao-Li region at the time. “Click to Know More Information“
