University History:
The Provincial Kaohsiung Teacher’s College was established in 1954.In August of 1967, the Provincial Government of Taiwan then founded and renamed the college as the Taiwan Provincial Kaohsiung Teachers College. The Institution’s mission was to train secondary school teachers for the nation’s nine-year compulsory education program. Taiwan Provincial Kaohsiung Teachers College became the National Kaohsiung Teachers College on July 1, 1980.Nine years later, on August 1, 1989, the college was re-designated as National Kaohsiung Normal University. The University’s mission was remodeled and became devoted to the cultivation of a rich intellectual environment where individuals can be trained to become the future leaders of society.In 1989, the University initiated plans to build a second campus in Yan-Chao in order to accommodate its new mission. The campus was inaugurated a year later and, in 2003, the College of Technology and the College of Science moved to Yen-Chao.In 2005, the University was recognized for its merit by the Ministry of Education in the national joint university evaluation and thus was both awarded funding and accredited as an “excellent” institution.
