DATE 2011/02/11 VISITORS 5925
After the long winter vacation, TKU faculty and staff today (Feb. 11) returned to work. It was their first day back since Chinese New Year, and thus their first workday of the Year of the Rabbit. To celebrate, A Chinese New Year Morning Tea was held at the Chueh Sheng International Hall. In preparation for the event, the hall had been decorated with auspicious symbols, such as Chinese characters connoting peace and prosperity. The morning tea also doubled as an opening ceremony for two newly established Tamkang institutes: the Office of Quality Assurance and Audit and the Center for Japan Studies. The former will work to raise the standard of teaching at TKU and improve the efficacy of its internal operations. The Center for Japan Studies, on the other hand, will strengthen TKU’s ties with Japanese business and tighten the already close relationship TKU enjoys with its sister universities in Japan.
The TKU Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Kuo-Hsin Yu, made a speech during the event. He expressed his hope that in this New Year, the Year of the Rabbit, each member of TKU’s faculty and staff may play their part in taking TKU to new levels of academic and administrative excellence.
