School of Lifelong Learning

Background

In 1991, the Center for Continuing Education was established to improve utilization of educational resources in order to raise awareness of lifelong learning in society. In September, 1997, the Center for Continuing Education was renamed the Continuing Education Department, with the goal of providing continuing education and industry-academia cooperative education. In response to the objective of encouraging lifelong learning as outlined in the Ministry of Education white paper “Moving Toward a Learning Society,” the Continuing Education Department was restructured and became the School of Lifelong Learning in June, 2000. Its purpose is to improve the knowledge and skills of the general public and boost their competitiveness in the workforce; thereby increasing the quality of living, social, and cultural standards of society.

To further enhance the academic strengths of SHU, the school offers extension courses and training programs that meet the needs of society such as for working individuals and people between jobs. At same time, it actively encourages Chinese to study in Taiwan and offers Taiwanese the opportunity to study in China.
