2016 PROGRAM DETAILS
Let's journey together.
TASC is a student-run conference that equips students from the U.S. and Taiwan with the resources & opportunities they need to become the global leaders of tomorrow. The conference is conducted in English. Here's what we believe in.
Our mission is to build and strengthen student-to-student ties between the United States and Taiwan. In doing so, we hope to create a new U.S-Taiwan social narrative for our generation. We look towards a future where American people and Taiwanese people view each other as partners and equals. Learn more about our mission here.
