Ching-Wu Chu to serve as TCUS honorary chancellor
NCKU NEWS CENTER
[Taipei, Taiwan, Nov. 5, 2012]
International superconductivity pioneer Dr. Paul Ching-Wu Chu, former president of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST), took up the position of the Honorary Chancellor of Taiwan Comprehensive University System (TCUS) on Nov. 5.

TCUS was established in 2011 jointly by National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), National Sun Yat-Sen University (NSYSU), National Chung Hsing University (NCHU) and National Chung Cheng University (NCCU) -- all in southern or central Taiwan -- in order to integrate educational resources in that part of Taiwan and to drive a comprehensive development of various industries in Taiwan.

In a ceremony, NCKU President Hwung-Hweng Hwung, on behalf of TCUS, announced that day the appointment of Dr. Paul Ching-Wu Chu as the honorary chancellor of TCUS. Chu was inaugurated soon afterward.

TCUS was honored to have Dr. Chu serving in that position, said Hwung, who added that with his outstanding and internationally recognized achievements in the world of scientific research, the appointment of Dr. Chu will help integrate the sources of the 4 universities and boost international cooperation based on the high international academic standards of the university system.

Chu is expected to lead TCUS to “face Asia and move into the world,” Hwung said.
Also present was Taiwan President Ma Ying-Jeou, who attended the event to give his utmost support to Dr. Chu and TCUS. He stressed that the lack of resources have forced Taiwan to utilize her strengths, especially her talents and expertise for continuous development.

President Ma also expressed his admiration to Dr. Chu for taking up the position voluntarily and hoped TCUS would help fulfill Dr. Chu’s aspirations of assisting in Taiwan’s education development.

The establishment of TCUS will facilitate the collaborations between industry and universities, according to NCHU President Der-Tsai Li. He cited an example from NCHU, where the university has set up agriculture-related research centers in Taiwan and Southeast Asia not only to form cooperation but to help establish interactions and collaborations with the agricultural industry.

He hopes that other than the aim of internationalization, TCUS would also emphasize on creating significant social impact in Taiwan ensuring further progress and development in the country.
