This study centers on the research and practice of regional revitalization by National Sun Yat-Sen University. In Taiwan, as the issues of aging, low birth rate and unbalanced development worsen, interdependence among cities and regions become excessive while the latter depend excessively on government support. Therefore, the current development of the university in Taiwan as the main driver for regional revitalization policy. However, with the severe COVID-19 outbreak in past three years, has “Regional Revitalization” succeeded in becoming a local support system? Community resilience is a measure of a community's sustained ability to use available resources to respond, withstand, and recover from adverse conditions. This study points to National Sun Yat-sen University's Regional Revitalization Team's assessment of the extent of community resilience in transitional communities and identifies opportunities for integrating the nonprofit and for-profit sectors in the development of social resilience, cultural resilience, and economic recovery programs. Therefore, The study probes into the questions of how National Sun Yat-Sen University perceives the concept of domain characteristic while practicing regional revitalization, and how respective action strategies for entering communities are established. Through field research, in depth interviews and analysis of existing literature, this study attempts to carry out a research of the transitional community, Zuoying, Kaohsiung City, with the aim of shedding light on the domain characteristics of it, and the relationship between the university and local community. The results of the study provide readers with an understanding of how transitional communities are becoming "resilient communities" through regional revitalization.
