Founded in 1950 as the Tamkang Junior College of English by Mr. Chang Ching-sheng and his son Dr. Clement C. P. Chang, TKU was the first private college in Taiwan. It became the Tamkang College of Arts and Sciences in 1958, before being renamed as Tamkang University in 1980. As one of the first-established schools of higher education, TKU now has four campuses: the Tamsui Campus, the Taipei Campus, the Lanyang Campus, and the Cyber Campus; and ten colleges, with a total of over 28,000 students, more than 2,200 faculty and staff members, and over 220,000 alumni.
Tamkang is a university of ideals, vision, and creativity. It sees the pursuit of excellence and ongoing innovation as the primary means of achieving sustainable management. In the 60 years since its foundation, TKU has focused on developing academic research, teaching, and learning services with an innovative spirit. It was the first university in Taiwan to employ Total Quality Management (TQM), which it introduced in 1992, the same year it set up the Committee of Educational Quality Management. In 2006, the Tamkang Quality Award was initiated to recognize outstanding departments committed to TQM. It has generated impressive results and garnered positive public feedback.
Tamkang University’s Triple objectives: Globalization, Information-oriented Education, and Future-oriented Education, was born out of the foresight of Tamkang’s founder, Dr. Clement C. P. Chang. He states that, “since the founding of the university, Tamkang has set ‘Globalization, Information-oriented Education, and Future-oriented Education’ as main objectives. The final goal is to attain quality research, improve instruction and enhance social welfare.”
