Description of School Motto

The ultimate goal of education is to develop people to ensure they can lead rewarding lives. To achieve these ideals, the university’s motto continues the legacy of the founding spirit of its founders, which is as follows: “Seek the Truth, Promote Virtues, and Practice Public Duties.”

Seek the Truth

The brothers who founded the university (the late Kim Won-keun and Kim Young-keun) were self-made men who made great contributions as educators in Korea. Although the brothers were unable to receive a formal education due to the hard times during Japanese colonial period, they realized the importance of Korea as they witnessed the plight of the country while experiencing many hardships in their lives, and invested all the assets they had amassed through commercial activities into establishing the university, fueled by the determination to protect our nation through education. Our university has devised a motto that speaks of the spirit of the founders: Seek the Truth.

Promote Virtues

A gradual decline in virtue and character caused by materialism can be witnessed in modern society. In order to become a top intellectual that seeks the truth, one must also have virtue. The motto of Promote Virtues was established by inheriting a humble attitude of give and forget and the spirit of love shown by the founders of this university.

Practice Public Duties

Because they had experienced various hardships in their lives, the founders understood the meaning of life and became the standard bearers of living up to one's principles. Their mindset of immediately carrying out righteous deeds, such as opening the door to education, or helping neighbors in need, inspired our academic tradition, which reveres substance. In order to symbolize our determination to fulfill the two mottos above, we created the motto of Practice Public Duties.
