2021 NCCU-SNU-UT Joint Symposium
Staying Connected: Voice and Hope in a Time of Challenge
The theme for the 2021 NCCU-SNU-UT Joint Symposium is Staying connected: Voice and hope in a time of challenge. As we all underwent disruptions caused by the pandemic the past year, it is even worth more appreciation of our efforts across three universities in Seoul, Taipei, and Tokyo to stay connected. Meanwhile, such a time of challenge did teach us to treasure more of what we already have in life while we all hope for betterments in the future.
