Woosong University belongs to the Woosong Education Foundation which was established in 1954 and has a long history of outstanding work in education, teaching, and training. Founded by the late Kim Jung-Woo, he established a vision for students and declared that
“We call on our students to devote themselves to society, accepting the continual search for the truth. Encouragement of personal growth assures that our graduates will have the skills and the motivation they can be proud of. Our school will always uphold the same ideals we foster in our students and set new standards for education in Korea.”
This vision of Kim Jung-Woo has become a vision not only for Korean students but for all young people in our international community. As we face new challenges on a global scale and as technology shrinks our world into one universal society, we will look forward together.
Founder Kim Jung-Woo’s clear vision and passion for education and the tireless efforts of members of the Woosong Education Foundation have made Woosong University a solid and dynamic institution with significant contributions to Korean society. The Woosong Education Foundation has established Woosong University, Woosong Information College, Woosong Language Institute, Seodaejeon High School, Woosong High School, Woosong Middle School, and several other institutions.
