The Chinese Society of Utah was founded in 1986 by Mr. Hubert Chang and many other Taiwanese (Republic of China) supporters. It is the first Chinese organization formed by new immigrants from Taiwan. Membership in this organization is about 150 and their occupations range from restaurant owners, businessmen, engineers and professors. The Chinese Society of Utah replaced the Chinese for Community Action in 1986 and became the representative Chinese organization in the Asian Society of Utah. A president, a vice president, and a 7-member board body provide volunteer work to serve its members and community. The CSU organizes major Taiwanese Chinese holiday celebrations, coordinates with TECO (Taipei Economic and Cultural Office) to provide visas and other citizen service, and also supports cultural events in the greater Salt Lake area.

They strive to promote unity and understanding among Taiwanese Chinese community, to provide services to Taiwanese students, immigrants and their families so as to help them adapt to American society and understand Taiwan , and to expose and educate Taiwanese and Chinese culture to the community and to broaden their perspectives and understanding of the culture, at the same time bridging cultural discrepancies.
