The NCKU Center for Women's Gender Studies was established in1995. The center commits itself to trans-disciplinary researches on gender related issues in order to cope with significant domestic and international trends. It is the goal of this Center to enhance the awareness of gender in contemporary society, to promote greater multicultural understanding. In addition, this Center aims to develop local studies of gender issues as related to races, class, human rights, and social rights and to use these studies to entail teaching and learning programs and to influence social welfare policy.

Some projects completed in these years include the following. Workshop on Gender and History; Project of Training Seed Teachers of Gender Equity Education; Teaching Gender Collaborative Project between NCKU and Its Neighboring Academic Institutions; Workshop on Gender Studies Program; Workshop on the Teaching of Feminist Classics : Local Perspectives; Taiwan Foreign Spouse Mental Health Demand of Research Intervention Result; The MOE Gender Equity Resource Center Project.

Some remarkable innovations are done by the center recently.
