Congratulations on President Lin’s Appointment as the Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Education


 















Sep. 15, 2014





     Si-Ling Lin, the president of Wenzao Ursuline University of Languages, is going to take over the position of Deputy Minister in the Ministry of Education on August 22nd. Prior to her departure, the school held the “Blessing and Gratitude Tea Party” for her. The atmosphere of her farewell was one of gratitude as all faculty members and students appreciated her efforts dedicated to the school.

     In her speech, she described her complicated mood transition when offered the new assignment. She stated that she had received an international call from the Minister of the MOE while participating in the opening ceremony of Taiwan Education Center in Vietnam. However, she did not accept the appointment right away; Wenzao had just been elevated to a university, and many school matters and policies needed adjusting. She therefore sought advice from Sr. Fidelis Wang and Sr. Ellen Mary Mylod, and prayed for God’s guidance. Finally, she was inspired by the words in the Bible: “When you help others, you help yourself” and “You find your responsibility when noticing someone’s needs”; she then decided to become Deputy Minister.

     She also said that it is very rare to have a temporary transfer for someone from a private university to the Ministry of Education; it was brave of the new Minister of MOE, Se-Hwa Wu, to make this decision. She emphasized that one of the reasons that she had accepted the position is because Minister Wu once mentioned that he is going to carry out the program of “Global Mobility of Youth in Taiwan”, which is linked to Wenzao’s perspective. She stressed that “Wenzao is like her home.” Leaving for the MOE with the spirit of Wenzao, she will never be alone. At the end of her speech, she encouraged all faculty members and students that as the only university of languages in Taiwan, Wenzaorians need to reach the peak by relying on academicization and internationalization. It is hoped that all Wenzaorians can achieve this goal one day.

     Sr. Teresa Ku, the representative of the board of trustees and president of the Ursulines of the Roman Union, the Province of China, gave a speech and expressed that this appointment of President Lin is a “miracle of God.” She said that everyone should harbor faith and belief in God. God will make Wenzao His school, and lead Wenzaorians to be His people. She said she hopes that President Lin can leave with the spirit of communion and Wenzao, and spread blessings to society.
 
     Following her speech, Sr. Fidelis Wang, the emeritus professor, and Sr. Ellen Mary Mylod presented the spiritual gifts of the Ursuline: the SERVIAN potted plant and the quotation of St. Angela, in the hope that President Lin can be the educational gardener. In addition, Dr. Ching-Hwa Tsai, the executive Vice President, handed over the inscribed board, “Si Zhen Duo Ling (司振鐸鈴),” i.e. the educational mission and vision to President Lin. Faculty members from each department also prepared souvenirs for the President.

     Wenzao Students Union (WSU) also posted the blessings on Facebook. The President of WSU, Yu-Lun Zeng, and the related personnel collected all the blessings and made them into a card for President Lin. Student Zeng said when she and the Vice President of WSU first took over their positions, they were encouraged by President Lin in person. President Lin always shows her concerns to student clubs and Wenzao students who are helping students in rural areas. Members of WSU wish that President Lin can take all the blessings from Wenzao with her and strive for achieving the educational goals in Taiwan.
