NSYSU organizes alumni banquet to celebrate its 40th anniversary
NSYSU President Ying-Yao Cheng said that the University has developed an outstanding research capacity over the past 40 years and is now fulfilling its social responsibility, striving for the healthcare and wellbeing of the residents of rural and indigenous areas and outer islands by establishing the College of Medicine in line with the government’s policy, creating a good environment for public healthcare, and cultivating smart healthcare professionals. “NSYSU has software and hardware prepared, faculty members employed, and curricula designed for the establishment of the College of Medicine”. President Cheng said that NSYSU has just celebrated the groundbreaking ceremony of the first building for medical education, which is to be completed within 2 years; the building for medical research is to be constructed next year. The University employed the former Deputy Superintendent of Kaohsiung Veterans General Hospital Shaw-Yeu Jeng to be the Director of the Provisional Office of the School of Post-Baccalaureate Medicine. What is more, in the second semester of the academic year 2020-2021 the University will start a pre-med micro program and further employ Taiwanese and international experts of basic medicine, physiology, and anatomy to teach at NSYSU, hoping to provide a better healthcare and quality of life to the residents of the rural and indigenous areas and outer islands of the Kaohsiung, Pingtung, Penghu, and Taitung counties.
“I fully support the establishment of the public-financed School of Post-Baccalaureate Medicine!”, said member of Legislative Yuan Chih-Chieh Hsu. Hsu emphasized that there is no public medical school in the Kaohsiung, Pingtung, Penghu, and Taitung area and that NSYSU is establishing the College of Medicine with the purpose of safeguarding the health of the residents of this area and striving for the justice in the transformation of medicine. NSYSU has been putting years of efforts in this field and now the last one step is left. Hsu promised to support the University in its efforts for the wellbeing of the residents of southern Taiwan.
What is more, many Outstanding Alumni-entrepreneurs attended the University’s anniversary celebrations with the members of faculty despite their busy schedules: Chairman of Go-Rising Trading Limited Tzu-Kang Lei, Chairman of Lung Ching Steel Enterprise Chin-Nan Hsieh, Eric Lee – Chairman of Jiu Zhen Nan Foods, Chung-Hui Huang – Chairman of Ba Ba Business, and Chairman of Brogent Group Chih-Hung Ouyang.
After the banquet, the participants held decorative swords and cut birthday cakes into pieces: a rice cake, an egg cake, a peach-shaped bun, and a cake made of crispy popped rice placed on 4 small-size university steles featuring Chinese characters for the University’s slogan – “Envision the future and dare to dream” and “Happy birthday”. The ceremony was an expression of good wishes for the University, wishing it to fully develop its capacity and achieve even more. In addition, President Cheng and Senior Vice President I-Yu Huang handed in sugar coated fruit sticks and egg pancakes with birthday wishes to the alumni.
