Overview


A university is a home, a place where a student’s intellect is nurtured with knowledge and wisdom. While a university’s success depends on the quality and future achievements of its students, such success is not guaranteed.
The university must create the best possible environment for education, where the potential of the students can blossom.
Although Gachon University went through some difficult times in the past, we have overcome them with a new vision to transform the university into a prestigious institution.
We were the first Korean university to open a College of BioNano Technology, which became an exemplary case to other departments.
When I was put in charge of managing the University, I pledged that “Gachon University would become one of the ‘Top 10 Private Universities’ in the country within few years.”Not only do I stand by this promise, I will take it further, and make sure that the university becomes one of the world’s most prestigious institutions.
I hope that all those visiting this homepage will identify with Gachon University’s vision for growth and success in the 21st century.
Although it has only been 20 years since its foundation, Gachon University will emerge as an internationally renowned university in the very near future.

President Lee Gil Ya

Gachon University was created as a result of a merger of two 4-year universities, which is the first case of such a merger in Korea. It suggested the vision for the future in order to define the future outlook of the school, and consolidated the strength of all members of the University and thus maximizes the synergy effects of the merger.

Based on the existing vision of the school–“Developing global talents with character”–the new paradigm has been suggested to accomplish the goals of the new school–“Becoming one of the top 10 global elite universities by 2020”–and establishing specific plans for the University.
