Konkuk University (KU) is a comprehensive private university, founded in 1931 by Dr. Yoo Seok-Chang, with the aim to open a higher education institution for leaders who would enlighten the rural population. With years of experience in rural reforms and education, as well as a short stint as a politician, Dr. Yoo became convinced that Konkuk University must set its goals beyond academic excellence. During his tenure as the president of Konkuk University and the chairman of the Konkuk University Foundation, he emphasized three virtues: sincerity, fidelity, and righteousness, which continue to guide the institution so far. KU is ranked by the prestigious QS and Times Higher Education World Universities Rankings. It has partnership agreements with 645 institutions in 68 countries.
