Gachon University is an academic institute located in South Korea. The current structure of Gachon university is the result of a merger between four existing universities. Gachon University of Medicine and Science and Gachon-gil College merged in 2007, Kyungwon University and Kyungwon College merged in 2007, and Gachon University of Medicine and Science and Kyungwon University merged in 2012. Gachon University has three campuses for undergraduates, the Global Campus located in Seongnam, satellite campuses on Ganghwa Island and in Yeonsu-dong, and the School of Medicine in Guwol-dong, Namdong-gu, Incheon, South Korea. Gachon University signed a strategic partnership with Hawaii Pacific to allow students to study abroad.
Gachon has been carrying out local industrial-educational cooperation with Pangyo Techno Valley in Seongnam City. What is more, the Medical Campus of Gachon University, located near Songdo International Business District (Songdo IBD), is providing the best environment for education with the medical and research infrastructure of Gachon Gil Foundation, which is comprised of Gachon University Gil Hospital, Gachon University Neuroscience Research Institute, Lee Gil Ya Cancer and Diabetes Institute, and more.
The founding principles of Gachon University is "Caritas, Devotio, Patriotismus," or "Compassion, Devotion, Patriotism" in English. It might sound like a cliché to some of todays young generation, but it is all about producing patriotic citizens who will serve the nation by being compassionate and devoted to reaching out and caring for the disadvantaged people in our society through education. The fourth industrial revolution of artificial intelligence that we are experiencing today has brought about a world where there are no fixed correct answers. Now, you can search and find as much knowledge as you want with the help of the Internet.
The old and fixed knowledge of the 20th century that used to accept only the best answers is now useless. We are living in a new century where the rules of games can change overnight, and where todays latest technology can become outdated by tomorrow. In this century, you can cope with the upheavals of the times only when you have both an innovative mind and competency. Gachon University incubates and nurtures challenging leaders who are full of knowledge, thinking skills, adventurous spirits, curiosity, big hearts, and positive energy. We want our students to be the first penguin that jumps into the icy ocean of the Antarctic ahead of all others leaders with an invincible spirit that doesnt hesitate in the face of the unknown frozen ocean when all others hang back.
It doesnt matter if you fail once in a while. Failure is priceless fertile ground in life. Those who follow only the footsteps of others can never leave their own footsteps. Gachon University was created as a result of a merger of two 4-year universities, which is the first case of such a merger in Korea. It suggested the vision for the future in order to define the future outlook of the school, and consolidated the strength of all members of the University and thus maximizes the synergy effects of the merger.
