Determined, to struggle for academic excellence while attaining and promoting the well being of our communities to the fullest extent of our abilities, and strengthening the already existing relationship between our countries and Taiwan;
Convinced, of the need to build, maintain, and enhance harmony in National Chengchi University and in Taiwanese society in general;
Ultimately guided, by the principles of democracy, human rights, nationalism, and universal civilization in a globalizing world;
In forming and organizing ourselves, as National Chengchi International Association, designed by NCCU International Association;
Do enact and adopt, this constitution as our primary instrument of functioning, governance and reference in matters that are in conformity with the principles of our University, National Chengchi University, the laws of our host country, Taiwan and our respective countries.

Join us as we grow in creating a more exciting and meaningful educational environment for all.
