In 2016, there have been many good times, as well as challenging ones. We faced a negative review in the 2015 Ministry of Education’s Comprehensive Review, we were not chosen for the High School Education Normalization Project, and we had to deal with our first sexual harassment situation. Despite these difficulties, we placed 23rd in the Joong Ang Daily’s University Review, 3rd in English Literature, 7th in Management, and for the first time in our history, we ranked within the top 700 institutions in the QS International University Rankings. Moreover, our Capstone Design Program received the Grand Prize for Best Brand in Education from the Seoul Newspaper and the Grand Prize for Community Service from the Universities of Korea Newspaper. We received certifications to dispense 11 Engineering Education Certification programs, and were chosen by the Department of Education as the location for the ITRC Research Center Project and the Technology Exchange and Technology Holding Company TMC Project. We received top reviews from the National Human Rights Committee and the University Transparency Review, the Ministry of Education’s Best Faculty Support Award, and Seoul City’s Green Campus Energy Conservation Award.
First, we will launch the first projects introduced by the Development Road Map.
Second, we will do our best to improve the quality of our education and environment.
Third, we will discover and support new projects at the newly created Entrepreneurship Support Center and the University Education Reform Center.
Fourth, we will continue to expand the support and care to our students and faculty members.
Fifth, we will continue to simplify the University’s administrative work and to increase its administrative efficiency.
