National Taiwan University, located in Taipei, is the leading university in Taiwan. It was founded in 1928, during the Japanese colonial era, under the name of Taihoku Imperial University. In 1945, administration of the school passed over to the government of the Republic of China, who renamed it National Taiwan University.


Academic sessions are led by prominent leaders in the public sector as well as experts on food security and public health in Taiwan.


Activities in years past have included visits to Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall, hikes up Elephant Mountain for city views, tours of Yongkang Street, volunteer work with the elderly, and company workshops with sponsors.


Social events include tasting food at a Taiwanese night market, eating lunch at Taipei 101, sightseeing at Tamsui, and visiting Daan Park.
