Founding History

In 1998, the trustees started to search for a suitable location for the university. After much research and surveys, they decided on the site in Wufeng, Taichung. Wufeng is where the provincial council used to hold its meetings. It is on a convenient location, with beautiful scenery, and rich in cultural atmosphere, which are ideal for centers of higher learning . In October of 1999, the preparatory office of Taichung Healthcare and Management University officially began operations. In March of 2001, the Ministry of Education approved the university’s legal status. After four years of hard work and strenuous effort, Taichung Healthcare and Management University was renamed Asia University since August 1, 2005, as approved by the Ministry of Education.
