HEEACT on Staff Capacity Building

For the past decade, Higher Education Evaluation and Accreditation Council of Taiwan (HEEACT) has dedicated immeasurable amount of effort into cultivating its staff and ensuring everyone received the courses that are constructive to his/her daily responsibilities as well as expanding boundaries, on top of the fundamental and advance knowledge on the operation and mission of the organization. By establishing close and recurrent working relationships with HEEACT’s top management and working staff, human resources are able to directly remedy the team’s weakness and convert it to strength.

Currently, HEEACT has a total of 48 staff members: 2 research fellows, 7 specialized administrators/coordinators, 14 QA officers, and 25 research project coordinators (excluding top management of Board of Directors, Executive Director, Dean of Office, and adjunct research fellows). Out of all the staff members, 40 have Master’s and Doctoral degrees and 16 have a degree in Education. By offering basic and professional courses aligned to the current statuses of government policies, technological and higher education global trends, as well as stating an incentive system, HEEACT is trying to strike a balance between being academically driven, culturally inspired and practical, and will continuously expand its courses with current issues and trends that promote both career and personal growth.
