As the Ministry of Education considers the internationalization of higher education as essential assessment criteria, Ming Chuan has an ambitious vision of becoming a world-class university. To achieve this ultimate goal, the university will continue to make progress in the following areas:
MSCHE: In an effort to enhance its administration efficiency and teaching quality, MCU embarked on the institutional accreditation process with the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) in August 2006. Ming Chuan was initially accredited in November 2010, and re-accredited in June 2016, both times with commendation for the quality of its self-study process.
AACSB: To further enhance the quality of its cornerstone disciplines, MCU prompted the School of Management to embark on the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation process in 2013. The School of Management progressed quickly through the AACSB application and confirmation processes, with accreditation granted in July 2017.
Strengthen the internationalization of education
To reach out with international education, the International College has devoted major efforts to recruit international students and promote the quality of its curriculum. In the coming years, each department/graduate school will join the effort to strengthen the internationalization of education.
Further improve the English living environment
The bilingualization of signage was implemented as a contribution to improve the English living environment. Thecampus has been widely internationalized across schools, divisions and departments, including International Village, International Walkway and International Dormitory.
Enhance all faculty members’ competence in English teaching
The university provides four years of English courses to ensure students establish a solid foundation in the universal language. Each faculty member should be able to conduct instruction in English. To better serve international students, administration staff must be able to communicate in English.
Provide cross-cultural psychological and adjustment counseling services
With the understanding that the internationalization of education brings the challenge of cross-cultural communication, it is our responsibly to provide international students with cross-cultural adjustment counseling services, creating a friendly campus environment.
Thus, to create a global impact, attainment of overseas accreditation is a key way to affirm the quality of education at MCU. This major breakthrough will position us well to cope with the challenges ahead and establish a landmark on the higher education horizon in Asia.
