The History of Sungkyunkwan University(SKKU), which is celebrating its 615th anniversary this year, represents the origins of Korea's higher education. Reflecting on the history of world universities, the most prestigious tend to have emerged from a long history. They also were initially at the forefront of moral and civic education. This is true of SKKU, which was founded on the principles of Neo-Confucianism and embodied its four cardinal virtues (인의예지 pronounced In, Eui, Ye, Ji) which literally translate in English to humanity, righteousness, propriety and wisdom. These virtues represent an expression of humankind's four inherent elements of spirit, action, conscience, and intellect. At present Sungkyunkwan University is striving to educate talented students with abroad knowledge base, communicative leadership and a creative challenging spirit. As a World Class Research University this is one way in which SKKU is contributing to the development of a harmonious global society. With the support of the world renowned global company SAMSUNG, Sungkyunkwan University has become a creative and innovative center of higher education. Our collaborative approach represents a paradigm shift in which we focus on pedagogical models that incorporate foundational knowledge, applied research, a focus on global society, and academic-industrial collaboration. As we look ahead to the next 10 years we are seeking to advance our notion of the universities new role that of spreading the values of self-autonomy, diversity, communication and trust as core components of our campus life. We are not simply following the same path that others have trod. We are definitely pursuing the path less traveled. We have a dream that someday that our direction will eventually become the standard by which all great universities are measured. This is the sort of thinking that is part of our VISION 2020. To achieve this, Sungkyunkwan University has set forth a number of goals that we will pursue with passion over the next decade. They include:Upgrading SKKU Brand Power,Educational Innovation as a Study Community,Strengthening our Global Research Capability,Developing Communication and Creative Management Strategies,Developing a Future Orientated Campus.
