Whether you are a website browser, educator, faculty or staff, current or prospective students, I would like to invite you to learn more about our goals, programs, faculty, staff, students, campus life and commitments in the following pages.
Sharing the Ursuline educational tradition and ethos, Wenzao Ursuline College of Languages cherishes its motto of "Revere the Divine and Love the Human." On this basis we develop our version of whole person education that engenders students' personality, social awareness and communicative skills with an international perspective. This holistic vision will be incorporated into our students by three stages, or rather features: Life, Language and Leadership. Understanding and respect for life are to be ingrained with the capability of language that fosters the proper expression of a whole person. Ultimately, we expect our students to be able to play the role of leadership which means serving conscientiously.
In Wenzao, we specialize in foreign language instruction. We also develop related professional training so that students will be bilingual, bicultural and occupationally versatile. While coping with the needs of a diverse student population, we intend to bring up students with humanistic taste and concern, filled with youthful vigor. Besides, our students are asked to develop critical thinking, creative imagination and to meet certain language skill criteria.
While respecting individuals in their liberty we provide vigorous and challenging academic programs that speak for "caring in truth" (caritas in veritate). Our aim is that by forming our students according to principles of life, language and leadership they will make society a better place to live in. Our policy is to shape them for decent social and spiritual profiles on every level for the future. Our means is to provide quality education and appropriate opportunities to help them become the best they can be.
Through empathic governance we shall bring together the faculty, staff and students under a unique Ursuline educational ambience that is interpersonally congenial, socially estimable, morally encouraging and functionally united.
Our track record of superb quality of instruction will stay on for the future eras and our widened horizon of faculty research will enrich the university community with freshened disciplines. Our newly designed interface of interdisciplinary programs will promise to keep abreast of external demands. Culturally and historically, Wenzao Ursuline College of Languages will continue to link up with global Ursuline and other institutes of higher education here in Taiwan.
