Chen Chunsheng, vice president of SYSU attended and hosted the forum.

President Chen Haidong narrated Tunghai University’s engagement in the promotion of liberal education and establishment of the Liberal Arts College. Tunghai University had implemented liberal education from its inception and is the first university to have general education implemented in Taiwan. The Liberal Arts College was established last year with an attempt to foster an education mode which integrates everyday learning with moral education. The notions and practice of Tunghai University provide valuable reference to SYSU in its promotion of liberal education and general education in recent years.
