Innovation and Leap for 2020 Dongguk University
I am Yi, Young Kyoung, president of Dongguk University Gyeongju.
Dongguk University, Gyeongju Campus was established in 1978 in Gyeongju, the capital of ancient Silla, with the purpose of creating a national culture through the harmony of mental cultivation and scientific inquiry. Our mission nurtures the leading talents at the forefront of unification, and the development of both community and academy.
Dongguk University Gyeongju is based on a Buddhist foundational spirit and fosters competent people equipped with engaged personalities and capabilities required for the development of society. Gyeongju Campus has produced more than 50,000 alumni in the past 42 years and has established itself as a major university in the region.
Dongguk University Gyeongju Campus will establish its identity as a university built on Buddhist precepts and establish a system thriving in a small but substantial local university. To this end, we will develop a future-oriented academic restructuring model and reinforce on-the-job training to create a practical and work-oriented educational environment. In order to rethink global capabilities, we will establish and operate specialized language training programs and international student management systems. Lastly, we will strengthen partnership among local industry, academia, and government to lead local industry, education, and culture.
We look forward to your active participation and support to create new values for our university and to take a leap forward for the future.
May Buddha's blessings be with you.

Yi, Young Kyoung
