President's Words
National Taiwan University is the university with the longest history in Taiwan. Since its founding, there have been more than 180,000 outstanding alumni who graduated from the University and who have become mainstays in their respective areas of specialization. Our extraordinary research achievements have been held in high regard by people from all walks of society. In order to facilitate our alumni and their associates all over the world to better understand the dynamics of their alma mater and to bring back their feedback and support, the university decided to launch the inaugural issue of “NTU Alumni News” (English version) in late April of 2007. By establishing such a communication channel, the university wishes to continuously receive nourishment from her alumni and to grow much more steadily in the global academic arena. From now on, we shall mail copies of the “NTU Alumni News” to our listed alumni periodically, sharing with them the academic honors and intellectual achievements of their alma mater, and hoping that our alumni will walk with us hand in hand to forge ahead to become one of the world's top universities !!
