About us

1.Our Vision

From personal experience and group organizations to the establishment of a society, Sinhua Community College is built on the learning of adults on social values, career development, networking, social responsibility, and social image, thereby encompassing the multifaceted aspects of adult careers.

(1) Compassion towards minority groups, intergroup dialogues: The community college is made up of members from all levels of society. Through a collection of different life experiences, opportunities for conversations are created, inspiring adults to learn about social values.

(2) Passion to learn, reflections that innovate: The creation of a friendly learning environment to ignite students’ passion to learn. Through reflections, students develop innovations and rediscover the meaning of life, paving the path to learn about career development.

(3) Form social networks, participate in public affairs: Increase social awareness of the community college students and encourage participation in public affairs. Students are also encouraged to form social learning networks and become citizens of society.

(4) Community training, taking action: In response to the harsh reality of globalization and large scale influx of foreign capital, the school’s goal is for a “sustainable Taiwan”. By training local talents, expanding local knowledge, and investing in local organizations, students will learn to care about their community and become socially responsible adults.

(5) Embrace diversity, be fair and just: Faced with the issue of Taiwan’s increasing income gap, environmental degradation, and extremely divided government parties, by embracing diversity and accepting different cultures, races, social levels, and generations, a fair and just social image of coexistence can be created.
