About Fu Jen Catholic University:
Fu Jen Catholic University is a private university in New Taipei, Taiwan. The university was founded in 1925 in Beijing as Fu Jen Academy, at the request of Pope Pius XI, and re-established in Taiwan in 1961 at the request of Pope John XXIII. Its name means "assistance" and "benevolence". Fu Jen is the oldest Catholic and Jesuit-affiliated institution of higher education in the Sinophone world, especially known for its strong ties with the Roman Curia. The university has since grown to comprise twelve colleges and schools, among which are several Taiwan's first/only academic units, such as Italian language, information management, museology, religious studies, and philosophy.
