This study analyzes the relationship between the university and local community through the concept of value co-creation. Commencing from the starting point of the domain characteristics in Zuoying, a transitional community in Kaohsiung City. Due to migrant settlement, regional planning by the colonial government, the city of Kaohsiung attracted a large number of settlers. Following the shift in economic emphasis inland, Kaohsiung shifted from an emphasis on the manufacture industry to the service industry. In terms of regional revitalization, Kaoshiung boasts high potential. The study probes into the questions of how National Sun Yat-Sen University perceives the concept of domain characteristic while practicing regional revitalization, how respective action strategies for entering communities are established. Hence in Japan, criticisms center on the lack of vision of the policies and argue that regional revitalization is merely old wine in new bottle. In particular, with the severe COVID-19 outbreak in Tawian last year, has “Regional Revitalization” succeeded in becoming a local support system? Through field research, in depth interviews and analysis of existing literature, the author attempts to carry out a study of Taiwan with the aim of shedding light on the domain characteristics of this region, and the relationship between the university and local community. Correspondingly, this study examines the feasibility for value co-creation of the two parties.
