The Educational Princeple and Goals

Openness refers to our goal of accepting, embracing, welcoming and incorporating ideas, beliefs and practices from different groups, cultures and identities. The inclusive ideal embodies the university’s willingness to allow itself and encourage others to be as receptive and tolerant with each other as possible.

Sharing refers to our objective of helping and supporting others to realize their life chance. By sharing with others we believe that we can create a much better society than we pursue our own self-regarding interests individually.

Service refers to our Christian belief that, by serving God, we serve ourselves. The university believes that all of us should be servants of ourselves so that everyone is at once the master and the servant all at the same time.

The university is well aware that the educational principle must be accompanied by the corresponding goals so that the consensual principle can have a realistic focus.

On a more concrete level, the university has broken grounds in innovative curriculum development along the line of the above principles and goals: human rights, peace, gender studies, reunification and international development. Due to our emphasis on these subjects, the University is widely known as the ‘university of human rights and peace.’ We aim to study and find ways to contribute to the building of civil society, local community and a better Asian society on the basis of the practical frame of human rights and peace.
