"Hallym University, a place for dynamic exchange where information flows, talent flourishes and a new future is designed"
Welcome to the Hallym University website.
Hallym University is being reborn as a prestigious private university that nurtures students for a new era.
Since its establishment in 1982, Hallym has achieved remarkable results by striving to becoming a leading university that produces excellent students, a university that fulfills its social responsibilities, and a university that leads innovation.
The mission of the university is no longer an 'ivory tower' that passes on knowledge. It must operate as a 'social platform that anyone can easily access without barriers'. If education, research, industry-university cooperation, and volunteer work were the roles of universities in the past, now the university must be reborn as a plaza open to all, leading social change.
Hallym will be reborn as a place of dynamic exchange where information flows, talent flourishes and a new future is designed. Hallym will expand the field of communication to the world beyond Chuncheon, Gangwon-do, and South Korea, and further expand to a cyber-campus equipped with a cutting-edge Artificial Intelligence infrastructure. We will provide a flexible education system for new jobs and studies that have not yet appeared so that not only current students, but also ordinary citizens and prospective students can discover and develop their own competencies.
Science and technology are leading the change of civilization, and the cycle of the industrial revolution is getting shorter and shorter. However, the material abundance they bring is insufficient to guarantee human happiness. In addition to specialized knowledge, balanced values, excellent communication skills, and consideration for others are also essential. Taking this as the basis of Hallym's educational philosophy, we will move forward towards 'Hallym University where all members are fulfilled'.
Your interest and support will be a great help for Hallym University to grow and develop. We ask for your active participation and cooperation.
