Chinese Culture University (CCU) was founded by Prof. Chang Chi-Yun in 1962 under the name “Far East University”, and later called “College of Chinese Culture” by the late ROC President Chiang Kai-Shek. Chang Er-Chi, a famous scholar of the Qing Dynasty, said: "The will of the scholar is the source upon which the whole world is governed and the people find their happiness." The words are meant to raise the political and social awareness in the life of the university student. Chang's words set the goal for our academic community, as is expressed in the university’s Song of Hwa Kang.

At Chinese Culture University, Chinese and Western ideals of traditional value and modern innovations are combined into leading edge topics, bridging cultural experience, and meeting the demand of the globalized world.

Since 1989, PCCU has been committed to widening up the cooperation and exchanges with the mainland China. Through the visits of student and teacher, cooperative projects among academy, seminars, research and lifelong learning, we actively promote cross-strait cooperation and exchange. In recent years, the results of the exchange has grown, now, we have established academic exchange or cooperation projects with 130 mainland universities.

At the same time, every year PCCU also contribute to the overseas studying projects. In addition, to enhance the understanding between the two sides of the new generation, but also to assist the young people having more opportunities and horizons of innovation and entrepreneurship.
