    In order to implement practical arts and cultural education, the Office of Arts and Culture in Cheng Shiu University established Taiwan’s first “Art Collection Bank” and successively established Cheng Shiu University’s Conservation Center and Asia-Pacific Cultural Heritage Preservation and Restoration Start-up Technology Research Center. Moreover, it also established the Master’s Program in Cultural, Creative Design and Art Preservation and the Department of Visual Communication Design, where students have won awards in Red Dot and ASPaC.

    Cheng Shiu University established the Conservation Center in 2005 to actively promote the right concept of preservation and restoration. The Center is committed to three major areas: Asia-Pacific cultural assets preservation and restoration technology, the development of emerging materials, the establishment of scientific testing procedures and standardization. Last year, the Conservation Center was transformed and upgraded to the Asia-Pacific Cultural Heritage Preservation and Restoration Start-up Technology Research Center.

    Asia-Pacific Cultural Heritage Preservation and Restoration Start-up Technology Research Center has established the indicative status in preserving cultural assets in the Asia-Pacific region in Taiwan. In the future, the Center will apply its knowledge in cultural protection of research resources, cultural relics, restoration industry, and transnational cooperation to restore and preserve cultural assests and the cultural creative and restoration material industries.

    The Office of Arts and Culture in Cheng Shiu University also established the first Management Bank of Art Collections in Taiwan. In addition, it pioneered the planning of shared and independent storage space to offer diversified services, making the preservation of art and cultural relics safer for collectors. The Management Bank of Art Collections also plans for temperature and humidity control for various art storage conditions, provides disaster prevention and earthquake prevention with security functions, and offers 24-hour indoor temperature and humidity monitoring for the collections.

    The Department of Visual Communication Design attaches equal importance to teaching and practice. Notably, the department’s students have won numerous awards in design competitions at home and abroad, including the Red Dot Design Award, Moscow Global Biennale of Graphic Design, International Biennale of Graphic Design, ASPaC, International Poster Triennial in Toyama, International Triennial of Eco-poster, and Adobe Design Achievement Awards.

    The students’ graduation thematic works achieved outstanding results in competitions in Taiwan. In the Golden Pin Design Award, the Department has earned first place among the finalists from a single department of visual communication for three consecutive years in Taiwan.
