According to information about higher education from the Ministry of Education (MOE), the ratio of economically disadvantaged students who were enrolled in NCYU and subsidized from MOE is within the top five among public universities in Taiwan, and the number is about 2.17% nation-wide. Therefore, our school is continually committed to improving assistance mechanisms for our students. The three goals and strategies for students, teachers and systems in our project of promoting higher education accessibility are all consistent with the major promotion policies of the MOE.
In response to the increased all-pass rate from the early-warning courses which socioeconomically disadvantaged students had in 2020, as well as the dramatically decreasing dropout rate of aboriginal students, we specifically target those with stable and consistent academic performance, and will provide more diverse supporting counseling mechanisms in 2021-2022. For example, students are encouraged to take double majors, minors, and interdisciplinary programs. Additionally, an institutional research and analysis competition for faculty was held in 2020 for the first time, and the faculty actively participated; many topics were closely associated with promoting higher education accessibility, and the results were impressive; consequently, it will continue to be carried out in 2021-2022.
