Providence University (PU; Chinese: 靜宜大學; pinyin: Jìngyí Dàxué) is a Catholic co-educational institution in Shalu District, Taichung City, Taiwan. Providence University is one of U12 Consortium member school, and is the only University in Taiwan participating in ISEP program.
Providence University was founded by an American congregation, the Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods (Indiana, United States). In the summer of 1919, Bishop Joseph Tacconi of Kaifeng, Henan Province, Republic of China, met with Sisters of Providence general superior Mother Mary Cleophas Foley to request sisters for a school for young women in Kaifeng. In 1921 Mother Marie Gratia Luking (1885–1964) and five other Sisters of Providence founded the Hua-Mei Girls' Elementary and High Schools there, one of the first schools for girls in China. In the spring of 1929, the school was forced to close because of political turbulence
The Providence Sisters, enthusiastic about female education, endeavored to establish another school in spite of the critical situation. In 1932, by the effort of the Board of Trustees, Ching-Yi Girls' High School was instituted in Kaifeng. Cardinal Paul Yü Pin was the first chairperson of the Board of Trustees, and Chi-Liang Ing was the first president of the school. In 1942, Mother Gratia and the other sisters were imprisoned and did not regain their freedom until 1945.
In July 1989, it has turned into "Providence University for Women". From 1993, it turned into "Providence University", and started to enroll male students.
