Marking its centennial anniversary in 2018, the University of Seoul has fostered talents that are essential for Korean society. For the past 100 years our university's motto has been "Truth, Creation, and Servie.". In 2012, we halved tuition fees for the first time among universities in Korea, sought normalization of public education and expanded social contribution activities, Thus fulfilling our social responsibilities as a public university.
Appointed as the UOS president this year, I proposed a new vision, “The Pride of Seoul – 100 Years of Learning and Sharing” to ensure that all members including students could be proud of the UOS, showing our ambitious goal of being the soul of Seoul.
The UOS is committed to developing competitive talents with the spirit of the times and citizenship, conducting innovative research that can create social values, and becoming the future-leading university by proactively responding to social needs and conducting sharing programs.
I sincerely ask for your passionate interest and affection for a new higher leap of the University of Seoul for the next century.
President of The University of Seoul
