Born in the late Qing Dynasty, Dr. Pao experienced turbulent times and made significant contributions to the country and society. In her fifth decade, she reinvested her life in her most beloved field of education to establish the first women's higher education institution in Taiwan, and was the first female President in Taiwan higher education. Throughout her life, she insisted on conducting education with the ethos of "attending to all students with parental care, support, and guidance". She emphasized teaching both theory and practice, as well as professionalism and morals. She cultivated students' perseverance and self-improvement with her personal example of facing challenging times by maintaining composure and persisting to the end. Relying on her own strength, she established Ming Chuan [Junior Women's Commercial] College, and after going through difficulties, she eventually became the president of the first three-year college in Taiwan to be upgraded to become a comprehensive university. Founder Pao was devoted to continuously improve Ming Chuan's education quality, which laid a solid foundation for Ming Chuan to step forward as a world-renowned university.
Chancellor Chuan Lee and President Pei-Di Shen continue the tradition of outstanding leadership modeled by Founder Pao, and are committed to achieving the institution’s goal of Ming Chuan being long extolled around the world, which is also the ultimate desire of all Ming Chuan people. Growing steadily and moving toward excellence, will make the reputation of Ming Chuan shine brighter than ever. We are confident that we will have more means to achieve this goal.
On this annual day of appreciation, we salute Founder Pao’s devotion to education with music and recognize the achievements of three distinguished Ming Chuan alumni. The MCU Family is proud of their outstanding performances. This year, we have specially invited Life Jazz Band and famous singer Johnny Yi to perform, as well as MCU Kaohsiung Alumni Association’s saxophone performance and MCU Taipei Alumni Association’s ChianSui Chorus performance to celebrate with beautiful classic music and heavenly singing. Together, let’s commemorate Founder Pao’s tireless work in education.
You are sincerely invited to join us for the special annual celebration of thanks. Let’s gather again to pass on Ming Chuan Family love, reflect on all that Founder Pao means to MCU and witness MCU’s innovations and progress.
