SDGs

It is our primary concern as a university to achieve the sustainability of human society. Our mission is to cultivate talents for future generations. The purposes of education are to develop cultural heritage and create a meaningful life. Thus, the universities need to be active problem-solvers for the world and sustain generations despite different disciplines and departments in the university. To respond to the UN’s sustainable development goals (SDGs), we have identified knowledge across different disciplines and started integrating humanity and technology via interdisciplinary research and teaching activities. We aim to bring students’ learning and self-fulfillment to engage the pursuit of SDGs, which fulfills our motto, “self-discipline and social commitment ”. We have marched for cross-disciplinary collaboration on our campus, and now let’s move forward together to the SDGs.
