As personnel are considered as the most important asset for a university and the crucial element that determines the achievement of institutional objectives, effective manpower management becomes the essential prerequisite for institutional development. Based on above concepts, the well personnel management is extremely significant. Therefore, Human Resource Division was established as Ming Chuan University launched its educational services in 1957. The current unit director is Jen-Nan Chen.
Mission, goals, objectives
Human Resources (HR) at the University is based on its educational philosophy of attending to all students - along with faculty and staff - with parental care, support, and guidance according to the University’s motto of honesty, sincerity, respect and determination. This assists in the achievement of its educational goals: profession, excellence and internationalization. As the cradle for school human resource development, our task is to improve production and service efficiency by selecting proper staffs and positioning the talents for the appropriate tasks. Moreover, a sound personnel system is eventually expected to be built through more job achievements, including proper personnel regulations, just examination of faculty qualifications, staff training, rewards for senior faculty and academic research, and computerization of personnel-related data.
HR Division follows three principles in screening candidates and evaluating employees:
1) All candidates must agree with MCU educational philosophy and goals;
