The first two decades after moving to the Waishuanghsi campus were crucial for the growth of Soochow University after its reactivation in Taiwan. Dr. Stone, Dean and then President from 1957 to 1968, was greatly devoted to raising the academic standards during his term in office, laying a solid foundation for the university in this respect. In 1969, the Ministry of Education approved that the university resume its status as a full university. Subsequently, Dr. Joseph K. Twanmoh, President from 1969 to 1983, had great achievements further actively developing the university. During his term in office, 12 new departments, 7 new graduate schools, and 3 new doctoral programs were started, and the Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Library and a number of main academic buildings were successively constructed. He also started the Downtown Campus on Kueiyang Street, Taipei City, where two buildings were erected. More and more outstanding young men and women were educated and had graduated from the university, and the school’s superb teaching performance has been well acknowledged and deeply appreciated by the members of public. After the efforts of two decades, Soochow University has now turned into a fully developed university.
