Kangnam University was founded in 1946 under the founding spirit of gyeongcheonaein (to worship the heavens and cherish humankind) and has been through Kangnam Social Welfare School in 1976, Kangnam College in 1989 and Kangnam University in 1992. KNU has fostered talented individuals who can drive the development of Korean society, practice sharing and coexistence, and demonstrate civilized characteristics with the educational objectives of nurturing civilized individuals, professionals and minds of service.

In particular, passing through the 1990s and 2000s facing quantitative expansion and qualitative growth, we have been building up the image of a small but strong university thanks to the entire KNU faculty, staff and students’ commitment and sincere efforts in order to respond to and lead the rapidly changed society and education market.

Thanks to these efforts, KNU has been selected as participant of Metropolitan-area University Specialization Support Project for 5 consecutive years and as support university of Development Project of University Education Competency and Admission Officer System Support Project for 4 years in a row. And we also have been chosen to participate in various government projects such as Job Support Project by Ministry of Labor, Adolescents Work Experience Program, Innovative Small/Medium Business Experience Program for University Students, National Employee Students Scholarship Project, Support Project for Korea National Institute for the Gifted in Arts.

In addition, we have strived to establish an excellent campus such as Yongin Special Scoll and Yongin Kangnam School co-founded by KNU, Gyeonggi-do Office and Yongin-si Office.

However, we are now facing the present of low-efficiency-and-high-cost Korean secondary education and we must deal with it in the future ahead. In an attempt to tackle this challenge, KNU is putting utmost effort to overcome the current crisis by reforming academic and administrative system and human resources network.

We will continue to lay the foundation of moving forward with the image of a small but strong university by practicing innovative management such as improving educational/academic/administrative system and introducing advanced IT system and globalized campus as well as reformed human resources network.

And now we have well-established plans and preparation to level with fine universities abroad with academic characteristics and abilities along with local and abroad prestige schools.
