Walking on the Path of Self-Choice

Dear students, faculty, and alumni,

I am Chi-Hung Lin, the President of National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University (NYCU), hailing from the vibrant city of Hsinchu. I am an alumnus of the fifth graduating class of the College of Medical at Yang Ming. After obtaining my doctoral degree from Yale University in 1994, I returned to my alma mater to teach.
I dare not proclaim that academic excellence inevitably leads to political office, yet between 2010 and 2018, I served within the public health sector, holding positions, holding positions as the Director of the Department of Health in Taipei City and New Taipei City Government, dedicated to promoting various health policies.
In 2021, I had the great honor of being elected as the first President of NYCU. I am deeply grateful for everyone's support from NYCU, which allowed me to be re-elected on March 6, 2024. It is truly a privilege to contribute to the establishment and growth of NYCU, this esteemed university. Together, let us turn our dreams into reality.

Letter from the President, Professor, and Senior Alumnus

I am a president, but more importantly, I am a professor and senior alumnus. I would like to share some stories and experiences from my life with colleagues and students. You may have experienced or are currently facing similar life challenges. Let us encourage each other.

This is my first letter.
Having served in public office and later becoming the President of NYCU, many people may assume that I have harbored ambitions of grandeur since childhood. However, reflecting on my journey thus far, I realize I didn't have many lofty goals; I have always followed my heart's desires.
