In attendance was President Flora Chia-I Chang, the three university vice presidents and first and second level administrators.
The forum began with President Chang’s opening address. She expressed, “In 1980 TQM received attention from the industrial world, in 1990 it became a part of the academic world and TKU has promoted it for the last 23 years. It’s my hope that everyone will utilize the spirit of TQM to help in terms of management, modification and renewal of spirit.” After President Chang’s address she reminded everyone to start preparing early for the TKU quality management award and the National Group Competition.

Later team representatives then shared their experience regarding creation of a curriculum for high school students, reduction of carbon waste and raising the level of environmental awareness. At the end of the event, President Chang expressed her thanks to Unimicron and Shao-ching Sung for their lectures instructing better ways to improve communication and the relationship it has on the quality of work management.
