Three major observations from the presidents are: globalization with distinguishing features make a university competitive; departmental characteristics and teaching innovation are in highest demand; reasonable allocation of resources and budget is the most pressing issue for higher education in Taiwan.

The Chief Content Strategy Office of the Commonwealth Magazine Learning Group, Chih-Fang Lu, said that technology is a threat and an opportunity. The future talent demands would include online learning, mobility, and self-learning ability. Audrey Tang also pointed out that new values will be created when people work together. A good example would be the common value found through reports made by citizen reporters. Technology is developed for the purpose of serving people better.

Tunghai president, Mao-Jiun Wang, shared his observation in talent exchange. While the importance of personal learning, autonomous learning, and core competencies is beyond doubt, the lax in some regulations to reach university autonomy is also in urgent demand. Tunghai University was highly praised by other university presidents for its holistic education, good social responsibility performances, and promotion of AI research and teaching. President Wang said that the university is putting up resources in setting an Artificial Intelligence Center, making AI Logic and Computing a required course in Freshman year, actively developing AI manufacturing, AI healthcare, AI architecture design, and collaboration with industry. The incubation of a future holistic talent will be based on digital, cross-discipline, and liberal art education at Tunghai.
