President Hocheng Visits North America to Kick-off Alumni Fundraising Campaign
In preparation for NTHU’s 60th anniversary celebration, President Hocheng led a delegation to North America to meet with NTHU alumni. According to Hocheng, since being established in Taiwan 60 years ago, over 60,000 students have graduated from NTHU, and that’s where the idea came from for the current alumni fundraising campaign titled “60,000 Graduates—600 Million.”
 
Hocheng’s itinerary included Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vancouver, Chicago, and New York. At the end of September in New York he attended a convocation of NTHU alumni as well as a forum bringing together leading figures in academia, government, and business to discuss a range of issues, including technology, finance, environmental protection, energy, and biopharmaceuticals.
 
While Hocheng’s visit to the US last year focused on presenting the latest developments at NTHU, this time his main purpose was to stimulate alumni participation in the 60th anniversary events and programs.
 
At last year’s northern California alumni gathering, participants included graduates of the class of 1972 to the class of 2012. Hocheng pointed out that NTHU graduates of all ages are working all over the world, especially in Taiwan’s high-tech sector.
 
As for the 60,000 Graduates—600 Million fundraising campaign, Hocheng said that it’s an important part of NTHU’s plan to upgrade essentials for maintaining the school’s leading position in education and research. Thus, all the funds raised in this particular campaign are going to be allocated for educational purposes, including programs for assisting students to participate in international events.
 
The Tsinghua Alumni Association of Northern California (THAA-NC) is also organizing a number of related programs. According to president Pi Keyu, the association is currently organizing a business mentoring program for young entrepreneurs in Taiwan, and Zhang Yuqing of the TEEC Angle Fund has already signed on. The goal is to recruit between 20 and 24 NTHU alumni to act as mentors for four or five students each.
 
Also, the THAA-NC is encouraging its own members as well as alumni of Tsinghua University in Beijing to return to their alma maters and share their experience working in Silicon Valley.
