The 189th Administrative Meeting was held on March 3 at the Ching Sheng International Conference Hall, presided over by President Huan-Chao Keh, with 3 vice presidents and first-level supervisors participating. The Taipei campus participated via synchronous video conference.

President Keh firstly emphasized that the current development focus of Tamkang is on “dual-track transformation”, “digital transformation”, and “sustainable development”. The planning of Higher Education SPROUT Project and school affairs development project should revolve around these key themes, complemented by unique features such as holistic education, and advantages such as the Center for European Union Studies. It is important to fully connect with the characteristics of each college and department, and create highlights through interdisciplinary collaborations. Secondly, he hopes that the supervisors can pay more attention to what is happening on campus. Relevant information can be obtained from the school website and “News and Events”. At the same time, he hopes that fundraising efforts will be made with care, and that alumni can be made to feel engaged through actively organizing events. Finally, each college and department are encouraged to identify suitable candidates for special appointment research lectures to enhance academic strength.

By utilizing local advantages combined with elderly health management and smart care, and cooperating with relevant medical and long-term care institutions, they aim to create an international long-term care welfare industry making base.
