Little by little and bit by bit, ice three feet thick is not frozen in a day. Located in Tah-lin, Chia-yi, Nanhua University is a miracle worked by million people’ karma power which turned it into their practical devotion. The roots of the University go back to those days of 1996 when Venerable Master Hsing Yun encouraged million followers to donate one hundred dollars a month for a person. The University that was born three years later was the product of million people’s efforts. Therefore, everything here and there, every construction and facility and its development in campus, comes from their toils and efforts. On account of it, Nan Hua conducts the University with a mind to express sincere thanks to the million and forward it to the ideal that education of the people takes a hundred years to bear fruits.

Since Nan Hua was reconstituted as a university, it has been enlarged to possess colleges of management, humanity, and social sciences. Due to the unique idea and emphasis on teaching quality, teaching environment, tutorship and students’ healthy development, Nan Hua was approved by Ministry of Education to become a full-fledged university in 1999. This academic excellence has made Nanhua not only breaking the records for its burgeoning into a university but also becoming a well-known private university full of humanistic thickness in Chia-yi
