Origins

The National Chengchi University Endowed Chair in Creativity was established on May 1, 2009. It is the first chair position at NCCU established with donations from students and members of society. Professor Wu Jing-jyi, a long-time local pioneer in creativity studies and creative education, was invited to hold the chair. The position was designed to drive groundbreaking foundational and applied research on creativity, promote education intended to nurture creativity, foster creative development, and inspire entrepreneurship. Current work includes building on past work on educating for creativity, imagining the future, and cultural and creative industries, assisting with the integration of educational and administrative bodies on campus related to creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship, and advising on school affairs, arts and culture events, and innovation studies projects in administration or research related to creativity.
