It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Dr. George Hsieh. He passed on the morning of June 13, 2017. Dr. Hsieh was President of Northwestern Polytechnic University (“NPU”) from 1991 through 2015, and it is truly impossible to sum up Dr. Hsieh’s dedication to and achievements for NPU. During his tenure, Dr. Hsieh brought countless new ideas to the educational world and achieved pioneering success in creating and growing a university continuously dedicated to the needs of its students in a rapidly evolving society. Dr. Hsieh’s energy and positive outlook was infectious and inspired faculty, staff, and most importantly, students to work hard and seek success. He will truly be missed.
