||Pursuing the Truth and Serving the People
National Taipei University was officially inaugurated in 2000 but it has a proud, evolving history that began with the establishment of the Provincial Junior College of Administration in November 1949. Later, it became Taiwan Provincial College of Business and Law, then Provincial Chung Hsing University, and then National Chung Hsing University, College of Business and Law. Finally, February 1, 2000 marked the genesis of NTPU.
The university has six colleges: the College of Law, the College of Business, the College of Public Affairs, the College of Social Science, the College of Humanities, and the College of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science; 23 master program; 8 doctoral programs; 8 on-the-job masters programs; and 10 continuing education programs; 9 graduate schools; and 16 departments.

At present, the universityˇ¦s population, include roughly 500 full- and part-time teacher, 100 staff members, and 10,000 students.
NTPU presently has two campuses: the Taipei Campus and San Shia Campus. The former, which is located in the busy and bustling financial and political center of Taipei City, is accessible to metropolitan inhabitants and boasts of highly functional and well-preserved archaic structures. The latter is in the San Ying area of Taipei County. It welcomes people with a baroque frontage and walls. Its prominent edifices, namely, the Humanities Building, the Business Building, the Administrative Building, the Social Science Building, the Public Affair Building, the Law School Building, and the student dormitories, co-exist with the lush, tree-dotted landscape and the serene heart-shaped lake. Each campus possesses a unique aesthetic appeal but, nonetheless, provides an equal standard for education.
