Korea University - Official Description
Korea University embraces the challenges of the 21st Century by building new bridges across old boundaries. These bridges include new educational programs that stress multiple majors and interdisciplinary studies; strategic partnerships with private and public R&D centers that pool resources and promote innovative research; and new international relationships that bring Korea University students together with students, faculty and programs of other leading universities around the world. Aggressive investments in new research facilities, information systems and infrastructure give these bridges the strength and flexibility to extend far into the next century. All of these bridges point to a single destination — achieving the University mission of educating "intellectuals in action." By "intellectuals in action" I mean men and women imbued with superior knowledge and the moral courage to put their intellectual skills to work in the search for lasting solutions to real problems. In a world of constant change, no institution can thrive by simply maintaining the status quo. Our efforts to move beyond the already strong reputation of our University reflects a 95-year tradition of ceaseless endeavor and reinvention.
