Ms. Chi Pang-Yuan received the honorary doctorate this year. Ms. Chi has done a significant contribution to the language/literature education and English teaching in Taiwan with her innovative methods. She’s always been the influential figure in this field, promoting language/literature education to help and instruct the post-war generation in Taiwan to develop their personalities and self-identities.

Moreover, as a distinguished scholar as well as a patriotic pioneer, she launched the global research interest in the study of Taiwanese literature by attending and holding international conferences and seminars with her own publication. Her contribution and commitment to education absolutely made herself a role model, and thus National Taiwan University awarded her this honorary doctorate to show our gratitude and appreciation.
