National Chung Cheng University | Taiwan
National Chung Cheng University (CCU) was the first public University established after Taiwan's economic boom in the 1980's. In order to commemorate the late president Chiang Kai-Shek and to develop higher education in the Yun-lin, Chia-yi and Tainan areas, the Executive Yuan passed a plan in 1986 to establish CCU. It was officially founded on July 1, 1989 with Dr. Lin Ching-Jiang as the first president of the University. Dr. Lin, as the founding president of the University, set up the original five colleges of the University, namely, the College of Humanities, the College of Sciences, the College of Social Sciences, the College of Engineering, and the College of Management. During the tenure of the second president of the University, the College of Law was founded in 1998, and the College of Education in 1999.
