In honor of their support of the university, Auburn Montgomery announces the naming of the administrative suite of the AUM Wellness Center as the “Drs. Yu-Tueng and Chau Tsai – Regitar USA, Inc. Administrative Suite.” The Tsai family has pledged $150,000 to AUM through its capital campaign, “Imagine. Invest. Inspire.”
This gift is one of many the family has made to Auburn Montgomery, including a scholarship endowment. They have a long relationship with the university dating back to 1985 when Yu-Tueng served as an assistant professor in information sciences and the Tsai children, Gary and Henry, attended the AUM Early Childhood Center. Yu-Tueng serves on the Chancellor’s Advisory Board and he and Chau are members of the university’s 1967 and 1856 giving societies.
In 1987, they founded the first Chinese-owned corporation in Alabama, Regitar USA, which was listed by “Inc” magazine in 2007 and 2008 as one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S. Regitar is a manufacturer, importer and exporter of auto parts and power tools.
When asked why they are supporting Auburn Montgomery, they said, “We love supporting higher education institutions, especially in the local community, because knowledge is the only thing that no one can take away from you. Higher education is one of the best ways to gain your knowledge and carry it with you for the rest of your life.”
