    Introduction

      Vision and Mission 

      The vision of the College of Humanities and Education is to pursue General Education and develop professional maturity by relying on the ideology of Holistic Education to develop its curriculum, implement teaching strategies, and undertake extracurricular activities. Students should not only know how to understand the current world but also become concerned about the ultimate end of it, studying traditional teachings as well as modern philosophies. They should start by learning about their native land and then expand outward to learn about the world, blending the spirit of humanism with the piety of religious belief, revering God, and loving people. Students should learn to practice their skills, find fulfillment in their lives, and become sincere persons. The purpose of Holistic Education is to help everyone who attends CYCU to become a whole person, a person who is balanced in body, mind, and spirit. More specifically, that means:

      To be a balanced person by knowing how to love oneself, life, and other people;

      To be a well-rounded person by respecting oneself, others, and knowing the truth;

      To be an optimistic person by being able to see the brightness, abundance, and variety in life;

      To be a healthy person by having a strong body, stable mind, and a thriving spirit.

       

      History

      Established in 1999, the College of Humanities and Education has been devoted to developing Holistic Education with the cultivation of Body, Mind, and Spirit as the basic component and the pursuit of the harmony among the Creator, humanity, the entire creation, and the individual self.
