In order to help the typhoon-stricken areas to reestablish their campus, NTNU Vice President Chen Chiung-Hua, under the instruction given by President Guo Yih-Shun, set up a working group to support the victims of 88 Flood.
Seeing the serious damages caused by Typhoon Morakot in southern Taiwan, NTNU Principle Kuo Yih-Shun urged that all faculty and alumni to donate a day’s salary to help the people in stricken areas. The total sum of money collected will be commissioned to governmental agencies or non-profit organizations to donate to areas in need.
NTNU is known as the cradle of teachers for middle schools in Taiwan, as well as a university that advances in the realms of humanity and arts. When Zhou Qi-Feng, principle of Peking University visited Taiwan’s academic circle a few days ago, his first stop was NTNU. Led by physics-major Principle Guo Yih-Shun, NTNU became the only normal university in Taiwan that entered the World University Rank 2008.
