National Dong Hwa University was founded in July 1994 with the planning stage started three years earlier.

In October 1991, the National Dong Hwa University Planning Office was established in Shoufeng, Hualien, by the Ministry of Education as part of its mission to foster the balanced regional development of Taiwan through the even distribution of higher education systems in the north, south, east and west of the island. Professor Paul Tzung-Tsan Mu was appointed to head the Office and led the development of plans for eastern Taiwan's first comprehensive university.

Taiwan Hualien Junior Normal College was founded on October 27, 1947, with Professor Fan-Jian Lin as the founding President. The College was located on Mount Hua Gang in Hualien City offering two-year and four-year normal classes.

In 1949, the Affiliated Primary School of Taiwan National Hualien Junior Normal College was established to provide a training ground for the College's students.

The earthquake in October 1951 badly damaged most of the school buildings and the restoration took almost two years to complete.
