In 2016, SSU was selected for the Advancement of College Education(ACE) by passing the high competition rate of 23:1. ACE Enterprise+ is a project that aims to expand and reorganize the original ACE Enterprise for a “well-trained university.” Moreover, the project is supporting the overall improvement of the undergraduate education system with the aim of enhancing university education capability based on university autonomy, creativity and diversity.
The projects implemented in 2017 can be broadly explained in three parts. First, it is a ‘Liberal Arts Clinic and Contest.’ There are such programs as book discussion seminar with the professors, SSU reading contest, writing contest for empathy and communication, and English presentation competition. Second, it is ‘a series of contests.’ Proposal for self-design fusion major and courses contest in MAX non-subject were held. Third, it is a ‘Career and Job Support.’ It was conducted as a career guidance mentoring with graduating seniors, task setting workshops with the incumbent, employment document concentration clinics, and job training programs to enhance business manners and community skills. The team of ACE Enterprise Promotion said that they would continue their program in 2017, as well as add several more in 2018.
