In his award-acceptance speech, Tunghai University President Kuo-En Chang said that Tunghai University is in the vicinity of the Taichung Industrial Park, the Taichung Science and Technology Park, and the Smart Precision Park. All educational activities are in close connection with the needs of the local industry. Besides caring about the society and the disadvantaged, Tunghai faculty and students also are dedicated to maintaining a sustainable environment. Two recent examples were a public-private collaborative project in re-generating the Dongda Creek to make a smelly ditch a clear stream again, and a ‘one university guarding one river’ proposal combining the efforts from four universities in Taichung City. The proposal was initiated by R&D Dean Hui-Chen Lin to extend Tunghai’s successful experience in the Dongda Creek regeneration project.
