Warmest welcome to Kangwon National University, one of the Core National Universities in the Republic of Korea, and representative University in the Gangwon Province!

Now, the higher education system in Korea is undergoing the most critical phase of change & crisis in the Korean education history, both from the international sphere and domestic arena. Started in 1947 as agricultural college and expanded to a comprehensive university having more than 130 academic fields and over 20 colleges in three (3) campuses in 2013, KNU strives to utilize this crisis as an opportunity to prove its inherent excellence. As a mid-term goal for proving our excellence, I have initiated a development plan of 2016 Renaissance KNU.

2016 Renaissance KNU consists of three (3) organic parts: Restructuring, Raising-Up, and Refreshing! By the Restructuring, KNU will accept challenge and change by restructuring our academic education systems. Under the Raising-Up, KNU will raise its competitiveness with pride by enhancing its research capability, quality of education, graduate employment rate, etc., through wide international cooperation as well as broad domestic collaborations. And, for the Refreshing, KNU will become a happy campus desirable to stay for all our members.

I wholeheartedly ask you to join and go together in this great process of recreating ourselves!

Kim, Heon Young

President of Kangwon National University

Initially established as an agricultural college, Kangwon National University has steadily expanded to the comprehensive university encompassing a full spectrum of academic fields. KNU expanded in 1997 adding a medical degree program and in 2000 a University Hospital. A law school, now called ‘Graduate School of Judicial Affairs’, has been operated to the University’s graduate schools in 2002, is the only laboratory school in South Korea, as a model for the very-early stage of ‘reform on Korean legal system’. In 2006, KNU merged with Samcheok University, adding the colleges of Veterinary medicine and Information Technology to KNU’s existing colleges. Since March 2, 2009, KNU operates a state-of-the-art professional Law School as one of the officially approved school by Korean Government.
