Korea University's Mission & Vision

Korea University was founded in 1905 by the Treasurer of the Royal Household, Young-Ik Yi, who believed that educating the young generation was the only way to secure Korea’s independence. KU is the country’s first institution of higher learning funded and administered solely by Koreans. As such, KU’s mission is to continue to play a key role in shaping Korea socially, culturally and academically.
