Overview

The predecessor of Taiwan University was the Taihoku Imperial University during the period of Japanese Occupation. Founded in 1928 (the 17th year of the Republic of China), the first President was Shindera Tan. In 1945 the Nationalist government won the war of resistance against Japan, so on November the 15th the university underwent a retrocession to Chinese sovereignty. The nationalist government assumed administration, reorganized the University, and renamed it National Taiwan University. Dr. Lo Tsung-Lo served as the first President. The current President is Dr. Shih-chen Lee. With 11 colleges, 54 departments, and 103 research institutes, National Taiwan University can be said to be the most comprehensive research university in Taiwan. The 11 Colleges provide a comprehensive knowledge map, abundant library resources, advanced technological equipment, smooth running academic links, beautiful campus environments, an aesthetic atmosphere, and offer convenient and rich research environments for faculty and students.
