(1) Indigenous Reservation

Our university emphasizes the development of indigenous villages and tribes, and strives to enhance students' understanding and connection to tribal cultures in order to preserve their distinctiveness and identity. In 2015, behind the library, an indigenous environmental education area was established. It initially started with cultivating millet and gradually constructed traditional Seediq high-raised granaries, Atayal bamboo houses, and Paiwan stone houses, creating unique classrooms that integrate with the natural environment. The stone house was even nominated for the 7th Public Art Award by the Ministry of Culture.

Additionally, the library actively participates in the electronic resource consortium with partner institutions, allowing for resource sharing and integrating the presentation of the university's history. This creates a comfortable reading atmosphere and enhances academic research resources.
