YDU was solely founded and financed by Dr. Kwang-Ya Wang and his wife in 1999. Dr. Wang came to choose the campus at a scenic village in Chaochiao Township, Miaoli County to start fulfilling his great aspiration of establishing one of the most exquisite, excellent universities in our country. Under the guidance of Dr. Wang’s educational ideal, that is “Ethnics, Innovation, Quality and Performance” and his so-called “3-3-3” educational policy, faculty members and students have spared no efforts to push the school forward. As a result, YDU has attained numerous achievements in merely 12 years.
