Greetings from the President
Greetings Keimyung family,
Even though the brutal and record-breaking heat was relentless, I hope you had a healthy and enjoyable summer. Now that we have received a pleasant breeze and some badly needed rain, autumn is upon us. And as the season brings with it a new harvest, I wish you a fruitful beginning of the semester.
I recently received some fantastic news. Conducted by the Ministry of Education and the Korea Education Development Institute, Keimyung University received the highest rating on the University Basic Competence Assessment. From planning to execution, this achievement would not have been possible without the sacrifice and contribution of all our faculty and staff. I would particularly like to express my gratitude to the group of faculty who prepared the assessment and to the committee members who created the report. Additionally, I would like to thank every member of the Keimyung family. Your enthusiasm created an environment where this achievement became possible.
Now that fall is here, we are approaching the student recruitment period for the 2019 academic year. Despite the difficult environment in the field of education, when I think of Keimyung University’s mission to continue to create values and be trailblazers in the new world, I would like to ask that every one of you takes every possible opportunity to ensure that the entire admission process, from counseling to student selection to admissions, be conducted without a hitch. Please remember our mission as we discover talented people and give them the opportunity to shine light all over the world.
This semester we also have the pleasure of welcoming 16 new members in 13 educational departments to our family. Because we not only want to raise the academic quality of our institution in the present, but also want to lay a foundation for excellence for the next 100 years, we continuously recruit the top experts in every field, both at home and abroad.
As we continue our journey, I hope that this fall will be another good season of sharing and gratitude. May God’s blessings always be with you.
