Challenge, Creativity, Innovation and Participation for “Semyung’s Great Journey of 100 Years”
As the chancellor and on behalf of the SMU family, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to you for visiting our website.
Dr. Kwon Young-woo (Minsong) established Semyung University in 1991 in accordance with the founding philosophy “Wi Se Gwang Myeong.” Since that time, we at Semyung have been making great advances towards our goal of becoming one of the most prestigious private universities in Korea.
Presently there are, however, many obstacles to overcome in accomplishing this goal, and we cannot afford to stop innovating and challenging ourselves. We should all do our best to make Semyung a great center of learning that gives students a solid educational foundation, enabling them to adjust to whatever difficulties life may hold for them, at all stages of their lives. We must nurture our talented student body to have the practical and specialist knowledge demanded by today's industries and communities, and we must produce scholars that take the initiative in global competitive environments.
We at Semyung must reinvent ourselves through innovation to become professionals with well-cultivated minds. We should pursue freedom, justice, and truth, and at the same time love ourselves. We need to serve on both the local and national levels and ultimately contribute to world peace and prosperity.2017 Message from the President
