Program Goals and Objectives

      The Horticulture Department aims to provide students with a premier educational and training experience in integrated horticultural resource production, propagation, management, and utilization.  Its education also aims to develop a global village point of view in the students so that they can put their knowledge in use both in and out of their profession.   Four teaching objectives have been identified by the department: 

❧ To teach fundamental horticultural principles that serve as a basis for the synthesis of knowledge leading to rational problem-solving

❧ To develop students' knowledge and ability to employ horticultural methods including production, propagation, design, utilization, and experimental techniques

❧ To provide a broad liberal education, including a strong liberal arts background emphasizing critical thinking and life-long learning, which will enable students to become informed, responsible, and effective professionals in the society

❧ To cultivate an understanding of legal, ethical, and professional relationships with the society so as to prepare students for professional practice in horticulture.

HCIO was homemade by NIU and delivered to other schools in Yilan to take precautions
against COVID-19 infections.

According to Dr. Po-ching Wu, the President of NIU, they have like 70 students from overseas. Most of them arrived on March 11th and had to stay at dorms for self-quarantine. Only 11 students from Hong Kong and Macau have not come back to NIU yet.
The school provided seven guest rooms for those students to do self-quarantine. "We are braced for it,” said Dr. Wu.
