The University received a national gift from the government of Taiwan: a replica of the renowned Kinmen Peace Bell.

Ambassador Paul Wen-liang Chang, director general of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York, presented the bell in a dedication ceremony at the Loyola Science Center on May 1. The University is the only higher education institution in the world to receive a replica of the Kinmen Peace Bell.

“The donation of this peace bell signifies the cordial relationship and collaboration between the University and the various government agencies and universities of China and Taiwan,” Ambassador Chang said.

The Loyola Science Center is the temporary location for the bell. University officials plan to erect an outdoor structure with Asian architectural elements to house the bell at a location on campus yet to be determined.

The peace bell dedication took place amid a series of events for the University’s Asian-Pacific American Heritage Month.
