VP's Greetings

Greetings from Korea University in Seoul

Greetings from the Office of International Affairs! As Vice President, it is my pleasure to welcome you to this online resource for all things international at Korea University. The Office of International Affairs assists in the development of Korea University as a vibrant international community and as a support resource for the promotion of the institution as a leading global center for academic thought and dialogue.

Under the inspired leadership of Prof. Jin Taek Chung, the university continues to remain true to its mission of being an historic source of hope and pride for the nation, while also seeking to address the many important challenges facing Korean universities. With a university slogan of "Human KU" the Office of International Affairs focuses on three main strategic initiatives, Fostering Global Leaders, Nurturing Korea's Friends and Raising the University's International Profile.

We seek to Foster Global Leaders, through offering outstanding opportunities for Korea University students to participate in exchanges with top quality universities from around the world. In addition, the office is providing an ever-expanding number of programs administered through our Global Leadership Development Center -- many of which include a service-learning component helping our students connect with local and international communities.

The Office of International Affairs also assists in the Nurturing of Korea's Friends by attracting and supporting the best and brightest international students to attend our semester, summer and winter programs, as well as our university degree offerings. And finally, the Office of International Affairs plays a key-role in helping to Raise the University's International Profile. In the increasingly competitive higher education market, it is important to promote Korea University as not only a world-class academic institution, but also to share with external audiences the many outstanding accomplishments of our professors and researchers.

As you can see from these many initiatives, the Office of International Affairs is a dynamic and vibrant place and we are proud to be an important part of the Korea University family. With this in mind, I invite you to continue to explore the variety of resources on this website. If you can't find what you are looking for, be sure to contact the Office directly --- it is our pleasure to assist you in any way we can. In the meantime enjoy your virtual visit to Korea University.

Prof. Hikyoung Lee Vice President, International Affairs
