A university in Seoul has opened its doors to the public for the first time in 30 years.
A group of scholars from the National University of Singapore and Korea’s leading academic institution, Korea’s Kookmin University, are hosting the opening ceremony on Wednesday.
Kookmin is a modernist, classical-liberal university founded in 1955 by former President Lee Kuan Yew and his wife, Chun Doo-hwan, to provide an alternative to the rigidly hierarchical and hierarchical institutions of the former Soviet Union.
In an exclusive interview with AFP, Kim Seo-jin, the dean of the Kookmax School of Management and Innovation, said the school’s aim is to offer a “cultural education” for students, and to create a space where they can “think creatively and learn in a democratic, non-political way”.
“We have created an environment where we can think creatively and have a more peaceful, peaceful and harmonious time,” Kim said.
The Kookmins students are also trying to transform the university into a “culture hub” for academics and academics’ groups, with the aim of promoting an academic environment where “creative thinkers can come together and collaborate”, he said.
But the school will also have an “international” element, he added.KOOKMIN has been a part of the Republic of Korea since 1965, when the government officially recognized the university as a state university.
Since then, it has hosted the founding president of the Korea Development Foundation, and also the late King Jigmee of Thailand.
In addition to academics, the KOOKMIN School of Business has also had students in the past.
“The KOOKmin School of Finance and Economics has been in the forefront of innovative and entrepreneurial activity in the country,” Kim told AFP.
“In the current era, this university is a unique and very important educational institution,” he added, citing its research, as well as its educational activities.
“We hope to create an environment that will allow our students to achieve their dreams.”
In 2015, a new, expanded KOOKMIN opened in a former military base, the Seoul City Hall, and this year, the university was also established in the old Kookmins military base in Wonsan, south of Seoul.KIM SEOPO’S KIM’S SEO BINYANG article Kim Seohyung, who is leading the opening, said that the school was founded in 1965 by former president Lee Ku-woo and his then wife Chun Do-hwa.
“It’s a new school founded in the midst of a military crisis,” Kim added.
“The students from this school are students who are graduating from military schools in a difficult time.”
The school’s students come from the same diverse backgrounds as the Koolhaas, which have been in a state of crisis for decades, with some of them having studied abroad.
Kim, who has been an active student at the KIM School of Law for nearly a decade, said he was looking forward to a successful start to his life.
“I feel very blessed and excited to start this new life,” Kim Seok-hyun told AFP, adding that he is confident that the KAKMEXS (Kookmums) will make a “great” school.
The Korean government recently announced plans to reopen the KMAJI (Korean Association of Military Medical Institutes) to provide medical care to the wounded and sick.
“This will allow us to provide a safe and dignified service for our students,” said Kim, who was among those attending the opening.
Kim said the KKEASA (Kooksas Korean Association of Students) will be able to “help us to build a university with a lot of innovation and innovation.”
Kim added that the new KOOKMAX School of Medicine will be “the world’s first high-quality medical school”.
“This is an important and unique opportunity for the KKMAK (Kakemin University) to develop its academic mission,” he said, adding the school hopes to help the country develop a “better medicine”.
“It will be a good and very innovative educational institution with an international focus,” he concluded.
