●Brief history
Soochow University, founded in 1900 in Suzhou, was the first western-style university in China. After the government of the Republic of China moved to Taiwan, some of its former alumni exerted tireless efforts to reestablish their alma mater in Taipei. In 1951, a board of directors was created and premises were rented on Hankou Street in downtown Taipei to set up the so-called Soochow Preparatory School. After the Ministry of Education approved the reestablishment plan at the end of 1954, the School of Law was the first to be established, which included the Departments of Law, Political Science, Economics, and Accounting, along with an attached Foreign Languages and Literature Department. The school became the first private university in Taiwan.

After 60 years of hard work in Taiwan, the university has grown and become fully accredited turning into one of the most prestigious private universities on the island, complete with six colleges (School of Big Data Management began enrolling students in 2015), 23 departments, 22 Masteral programs, and 6 Doctoral Programs. The student population has also exceeded 15,000.

We adhere to the best of the school's traditions while sticking to the motto "Unto a Full Grown Man" in carrying out our education programs steadfastly. As a result of unbending board principles, efficient school operations, and comprehensive foundation programs, the school has received the Ministry of Education's "Teaching Excellence Program" award for eleven consecutive years since 2005.

Our educational development programs are based on the pursuit of highest "teaching" quality and "learning" excellence for the students. Building on almost a century of academic excellence and with full understanding of our intrinsic values, a practical integration of resources, and a focus on strengthening character development, we hope to create a new era for Soochow University.
