One of the four oldest universities in Taiwan, National Taiwan Normal University (NTNU), located in the Da'an District of Taipei City, was founded in 1922 and initially dedicated to teacher education. It has since grown to offer study and research in a wide variety of fields, notably education and training, library and information management, linguistics, sports-related subjects, performing arts, and modern languages. NTNU's Mandarin Training Center is internationally renowned. The current NTNU president received their PhD in (computer) science education from The University of Texas at Austin. The Shida Night Market, next to NTNU is open nightly and has vendors selling local street food, clothing, and other items.
