In the light of abolition of the university entrance examination system scheduled for 2002, the supplanting scheme separating examination and nomination fueled the community’s contention for outstanding candidates, coupled with competition from elite universities abroad engendered by Taiwan WTO entry, how to compete with renowned international institutions, how to package the school and conduct effective marketing have become the primary tasks of the Public Affairs Office.

The scope of this office’s capacity includes:
I. On and off campus news liaison and image packaging
