The magnificent spirits of the old era that created SKKU’s traditions and legacy are the roots of our foundation. SKKU’s great 620-year heritage is what makes us brilliant.
Now, SKKU is challenging itself to become a global leading university while sharing “new values from old” with every member of the university.
SKKU aims to create an educational system that is internationally recognized as a global standard through the establishment of a smart innovative academic ecosystem, and to become a hub of convergence research and education that leads future values. We will actively solve global issues and will continue to raise the value of our research and academics through cooperation with the world’s most prestigious universities.
Great achievement comes from putting in the effort to achieve greatness (大成成大).
All Sungkyunkwan members are working for the mutual goals and values while considering and respecting each other as a united group utilizing effective communication and integration.
