Both art and science are tools for obtaining knowledge and seeking truth. However, the investment of time and resources required for art education may not yield the same measurable ＂results＂ or ＂products＂ as scientific studies, so there is a common belief in the society that ＂art is useless.＂ As Taiwan’s higher education system faces budget cuts, resulting in the closing and restructuring of universities, this paper seeks possible strategies dealing with budget restraints by examining recent developments in university art education the United States. The present study also investigates specific strategies used by universities in Taiwan, with an intended focus on the strategies implemented by the Art and Culture Center of National Chengchi University and its recent endeavors in aesthetic educational practice. This project had three primary developmental stages:1) integrating and consolidating resources, 2) stimulating professional development, and 3) surpassing previous outcomes. With an eye to creating new and enjoyable programming for audience, the model had four primary aims: 1) improving quality of exhibitions, 2) deepening the educational value of programming, 3) expanding public service participation in projects, and 4) strengthening team management. Through an analysis of the programming outcomes as well as audience surveys, this paper argues that the NCCU Art and Culture center’s strategic model achieved the following concrete goals: 1) improving exhibit quality; 2) providing diverse art programming; 3) using Art and Culture Center programming as a means to support in-curricula art education; 4) cultivating talent in cultural and artistic spheres; 5) encouraging an artistic movement centered on community participation; 6) establishing a forum at the university for art discussion. Through the methods stated above, this paper hopes to reveal the value for University Art and Culture Centers in promoting aesthetic education.
