NCKU puts special emphasis on the development of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 for the year 2030. NCKU integrates resources and leads the various departments to formulate the goals and strategies of the development plan with global perspective, in combination of human beings and environment.

NCKU work with the international community to challenge the old a logic of economic growth and take balance, health, food, poverty, education, and climate change into account for the improvement of the quality of human life and symbiotic relationship between life and nature.

To implement the philosophy, mission, vision and development goals, we specifically formulate “Interdisciplinary Curriculum on Problem Solving,” “Excellent Research for Sustainable Development” and “Social Responsibility for the Promotion of Urban Development and Human Well-Being.” In the midterm Development Program of NCKU, the educational “Goal,” “Strategy” and "Action" are formulated as following within the energy of imaginative thinking.
