Chinese Culture University is located on Yang Ming Mountain, offering a high quality study environment – healthy, peaceful, and inspiring. The place of the hill on which it rests overlooking the Taipei basin had once been a nameless orange plantation. The University Founder Prof. Chang Chi-Yun had paid for it by largely relying on credit, determined to realize his vision, and shaped the place by calling it Hwa Kang (Hua Gang), which in Chinese implies both the beauty and outstanding character of the natural spot and the glory of Chinese culture.

Chinese Culture University (CCU) was founded in 1962 under the name “Far East Research Institute”, starting with twelve research divisions: The Three Principles of the People (after Sun Yat-Sen), Commerce and Trade, Engineering, Agriculture, Philosophy (incl. Education), Literature, History, Politics, Economics, Law, Earth Sciences, Housekeeping and Arts. The first building being erected was the Da Cheng building. One year later in spring, the Institute was structured into 15 departments: Philosophy, Chinese Culture, Asian Languages (incl. Departments of Russian, Japanese, Korean), English, French, German, History, Earth Sciences, News and Information, Aesthetic Arts, Music, Drama, Sports, Housekeeping, Architecture, and City Planning. In fall, four more departments had been added, serving as evening school, offering Administration, Social Work, Mass Communication and Business Studies. Based on this re-organization, the institution became officially recognized by the government as ranking on university level, and was re-named “College of Chinese Culture” by the late President of the Republic of China (R.O.C.), Chiang Kai-Shek.
