President’s Welcome

home About SKKU Office of the PresidentWelcome from the President


For over six hundred years, Sungkyunkwan University has held an extraordinarily special place in the history of Korea. Sungkyunkwan’s contributions to the education and training of royal scholar-officials by preeminent Korean philosophers have laid the foundation for numerous national advancements. Since its establishment, the school’s educational tradition has emphasized the four principles of benevolence, righteousness, propriety, and wisdom.


We believe these are values which can carry our university to greater heights in the globalized world, especially when pursuing innovation with humanity and integrity. The complementary principles of mutual understanding, respect for peers, striving toward the common good, and unity; have become increasingly important as the demands of modern life challenge us on a daily basis.



Sungkyunkwan University has also evolved to incorporate a modern educational paradigm that prioritizes cutting-edge research and innovative education. This has led to important advances in the arts, sciences, medicine, and technology in ways that allow greater synergy with other leading universities and institutions throughout the world.


Great achievement comes from putting in the effort to achieve greatness(大成成大). Sungkyunkwan University strives to become a model university globally by upholding the traditional values of humanity along with the pursuit of modern contributions for humankind. We aim to raise the bar in research and education through international collaboration based upon these principles. We invite you to join us as we strive to reach this summit.
