Company Biography

The Sisters of Providence in the United States recognized in the early 20th century that women's social status was generally low in countries around the world. They felt a calling to serve in poverty-stricken and war-torn China. Thus, in 1920, they dispatched Mother Marie Gratia Luking along with five sisters to Henan, Kaifeng, to begin their work in women's education, and in 1921, they established the "Hua-Mei Girls' Elementary and High Schools." In 1932, to commemorate the hardships endured by Mother Marie Gratia, the school was renamed "Jing-Yi Girls' High School" using her Chinese name, "Lu Jing-Yi."

In 1948, Mother Marie Gratia decided to relocate the school to Taiwan and continued their educational mission. In 1949, they founded the "Catholic English School," which grew rapidly in student numbers. In 1953, a new campus was built on Fuxing Road in Taichung City. In 1956, it was officially registered with the Ministry of Education as the "Providence Girls' English Specialized School." In recognition of its excellent educational achievements, it was granted the status of "Providence Girls' College of Arts and Sciences" in 1963. With a significant increase in student numbers, the campus became overcrowded, prompting the relocation to Shalu in 1987. In 1989, it was restructured and became the "Providence Women's University," and in 1993, it was renamed "Providence University," allowing for the admission of male students.

Currently, Providence University has six colleges: the College of Foreign Languages, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, the College of Science, the College of Management, the College of Informatics, and the International College, with a student population of over 11,000.
