       Fongshan Community University was established on March 1, 2003. The Kaohsiung Labor and Life Education Promotion Association has operated Fongshan Community University since being selected by the Kaohsiung City Government Education Bureau on Jan. 1, 2014. The headquarters of the university is currently located at Fongshan Zhongshan Elementary School. The districts that the school is responsible for, in addition to Fongshan, also includes three administrative districts: Niaosong, Dashu, and Daliao. In terms of the overall way of administering the school, the school adopts strategic alliances with local communities, schools and non-governmental organizations to promote courses. Taking into account the differences between the urban and rural areas in different regions and the need to promote community learning, the school also focuses on the topics of community building, ecological conservation, and cultural assets. The school promote these topics in a planned way and encourages people to enter the community and care about the big and small things in life together with She Da.

In terms of the "Fongshan District" where the school is located, it is currently the most populous administrative district in Kaohsiung City. In addition to being the location of the Kaohsiung City Government's Fengshan Administrative Center and the Kaohsiung City Council, it is also the key place for candidates in local elections. It plays a pivotal role in the political, economic, and cultural development of Kaohsiung City. It has considerable strength in promoting social learning, civic participation, community building and social reform.

       The promotion of the school’s educational philosophy is also different from general social education institutions’. The school seeks to adhere to the appeal of the proponent Professor Huang Wuxiong "--- To promote social reconstruction through social learning, and guide Taiwan to becoming a civil society through social reconstruction". Additionally the school also focuses on the special social background of the school district to which it belongs. The three strategies of "urban-rural connection", "youth association", and "public participation" have been proposed for implementation.

       Considering the conditions needed for administering a school and responding to the developmental needs of the local environment, the school positions itself as "a school that drives the co-prosperity of urban and rural areas." Its connotation is to use the "community" as a field for fulfilling public participation through the continued construction of local education. In addition to encouraging the integration of classes and communities for public development, it also unites efforts in the development of local organizations, promoting the establishment of community organizations, and developing public-private partnerships with the district office as the main axis of development.

       In terms of school management, the school adopts the "learning group" method to divide the work in the administrative organization, thereby allowing all workers to have the ability to help in curriculum planning, class management, and community participation in order to strengthen flexibility within different school environments. On the other hand, in order to promote teachers and students participation in campus co-governance and campus democracy, the school adopts a rolling approach with regards to school affairs decision-making, and actively supports the teachers’ group, students’ group, and communities’ group, leading to the accumulation of experience in administering a school as well as the added bonus of public participation.

       In terms of public participation, Fongshan Community University has gradually accumulated experience in "public-private collaboration", "eco-friendly farming", "cultural assets", and "lifelong learning" after years of development.
