Professor Xu Yeliang, the director of the center, said that seven YZU graduated students have also become entrepreneurs.

About Us

Yuan Ze University inaugurates campus public relations function in 1993, and in 1997 instituted the public relations office which was renamed the Public Affairs Office in 2001 after augmenting its function, predicating the communication mechanism with the media, on and off campus interaction. 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
This office is responsible for releasing official news and packaging the school image, cementing rapport with the media, and maintaining interaction with the corporate sector. On regular basis the office holds press conference, publish news release and event information to heighten publicity.

In 2002 the Office of Student Affairs took charge of the alumni service.

III. Yuan Ze e-newsletter Editor

Fundraising is one of the most challenges for the office. The office’s duties are: to host regular fundraising committee meeting, regulate guidelines for fundraising, and compile potential benefactor list. The office also has to maintain close contact and interaction with the corporate sector and organize fundraising events for the university affairs.
