MISSION
The mission of the Research Center for Humanities and Social Sciences includes research, teaching, and knowledge sharing. The main tasks of the Center are as follows:
To draft university-wide research and development plans for humanities and social sciences, improve teaching quality, and establish a platform to facilitate research, teaching and community outreach.
To nurture a new generation of cross-disciplinary scholars/teachers, encouraging them to participate in various international academic communities and helping them broaden their perspectives.
To provide a forum for scholars to exchange professional ideas and knowledge at regional, national, and international scales.
To establish cooperative relationships with research institutes in Taiwan and abroad, initiating and participating in international academic exchanges, and raising the university's scholarly reputation in humanities and social sciences.

STATUS
Founded in 2008, the Research Center for Humanities and Social Sciences (RCHSS) at NCHU is one of the four such centers in Taiwan funded by the Ministry of Education. As the only center of this kind located in central Taiwan, the Center serves as a pivot for regional, national and international academic collaborations.

VISION
The primary aim of the RCHSS is to create a scholarly atmosphere grounded in multidisciplinary empirical research, with emphasis on both theory and practical problem-solving, which not only pursues teaching and learning excellence but also provides an intellectual ground for resolving social and cultural disputes over important local or global issues.
