School Profile

In the beginning of the twentieth century, having realized the call for their service in China which was then at war and in poverty, Mother Marie Gratia Luking (1885-1964) and five sisters from the American Sisters of Providence sailed from the United States to China to begin their tough work with only their faith and typewriters. In 1920, Mother Luking arrived in China for the first time and began her preaching and education career. In 1948, she went to Taiwan and established the Catholic English Supplementary School in the following year. In 1956, Providence Junior College for Women was officially established as the forerunner of the Providence University. In 1963, Providence Junior College for Women was promoted to become the Providence College of Arts and Sciences for Women for its excellent performance in running the school. It was the only women's college in Taiwan, and also the first evening college in central Taiwan. In 1987 autumn, Providence University was moved to the present address in Shalu Town, Providence University 200 Taiwan BLVD, Sec. 7 Taichung 43301, Taiwan. In 1989, it was promoted to the Providence Girl's University. In 1993, it was renamed as Providence University and began to recruit male students. The university was named Providence to commemorate the Sisters of Providence to which the founding sisters belonged; and its Chinese name Ching-yi is named after the Chinese name of Mother Luking. The University is comprised of six colleges: 1.) Foreign Languages and Literature, 2.) Humanities and Social Sciences, 3.) Sciences, 4.) Management, 5.) Computing and Informatics, 6) International College. Within the colleges there are twenty-three departments, nineteen graduate programs, two Ph.D. programs, and four EMBA programs. In addition, Providence has six centers: Foreign Language Center, Chinese Language Education Center, Center for Teacher Education, The Research & Development Center of Idea Generation in Reading & Writing, Service Learning Center and Center for General Education

In accordance with the university objectives of "Holistic Formation and Professional Guidance", we aim to educate our students to realize the value of life with Truth, Goodness, Beauty, and Ethics; to expand global vision and communication ability; to foster the desire of knowledge seeking and problem solving; and to possess specialized knowledge with proper use of technology.
