AbstractAs the founder of Huafan University, the Buddhist nun Xiuwen (1912-2004) had extensive influence in Taiwan, creating a model for Buddhist learning and social engagement through “jue” (enlightening) education. In Taiwan in the 1990s, the image of Xiuwen shifted from that of a world-traveled artist nun to an extraordinary educator, as she set about establishing the first Buddhist University in Chinese history. Her achievements stand in marked contrast to the Chinese government’s expropriation of Buddhist temples to reform the public school system. The opening of Huafan Technology College in 1990 and its growth to the status of a university seven years later indicate significant changes both in the system of religious education in Taiwan and in mobilizing strategies, which were implemented especially by Buddhist women. This paper will examine how Xiuwen, a female religious leader, succeeded in establishing the first Buddhist university in Taiwan.
