S.E.E.D. is the abbreviations of Seek, Engage, Express and Diversity. These four words contain the vision of whole-person university students in liberal-art education. Starting from “Seek”, it indicates a sense of curiosity as well as the speculation and exploration to the world. It is “Engage” after seeking, which represents the care to UIC community with citizen responsibility. When engaging in the community, also “Express” in it. “Express” means the ability of independent thinking and the atmosphere of free discussion, when taking in different voices. “Diversity”, as the core and context of the former three parts, signifies the integration of knowledge and inspiration of interdisciplines.
