Established in August 2002, the Committee of General Education is in charge of the pedagogical and administrative affairs of students' general education. The Committee's mission is to help students develop healthy characters, visions, social sophistication, and knowledge in both art and science. There are three units under the Committee: the Department of General Education provides cross-disciplinary training; the Center for Teacher Education trains teachers for secondary education; and the Graduate Institute of Transdisciplinary Study on Creative Writing and Literature.
