About the Higher Education Sprout Project

The aim of the Higher Education Sprout Project (HESP) of Tunghai University is to cultivate talent in accordance with the University's strategic plan by way of using the following four strategies: enhanced liberal arts education, specialized programs for interdisciplinary studies, an innovative learning ecosystem, and social innovation praxis. HESP awakens students’ desire to learn and expand their global vision. With liberal arts education at its core, the project emphasizes language skills, general education, logic, computational thinking, and international exchange.HESP is an innovative project that, with a base of developing academic affairs, links existing student learning issues with future social and industrial needs. Beyond professional skills, we hope to nourish students’ general liberal arts education and interdisciplinary learning abilities, thus allowing students to have the skills to recognize, confront, and resolve key social issues of the future. The images below describe the pillars and core concepts of HESP.
