Dankook University

The founding philosophy of Dankook University – National Salvation, Independence and Self-Reliance – originates from the personal ideals which our founders Mr. Beomjeong, Chang Hyong and Mrs. Hyedang, Cho Huijae had cultivated in themselves through turbulent times in Korean history. They had personally experienced the sorrow of losing their country under Japanese rule and eventually were convinced that independence could only be achieved through educating talented and patriotic individuals. The two founders realized that the educated had to use their abilities not for personal gain but for the nation as a whole, driven by a sense of national identity and historical/social truth. Indeed, they believed it was Dankook University’s duty to train such enlightened individuals.
