Birth of a Bold Legacy:
During one of the darkest times in Korean history, visionary founder Kim Lyun-joon established Dong-A Engineering Institute in 1939. Kim recognized that quality education was the key to liberating his oppressed country, that his people needed to be equipped with advanced knowledge and skills in order to be independent. Despite numerous challenges, Dong-A Engineering Institute expanded into Hanyang University in subsequent years, and an educational foundation was established to better support numerous other education institutions. Since its opening, Hanyang has been the driving force behind Korea’s miraculous transformation from being one of the poorest countries in the 1950s and 60s to be among the largest economies in the world today. Nearly 80 years later, Hanyang Foundation is educating an average of 35,000 people every year.
Greetings from the Chairman, Board of Trustees
Based on the philosophy of the founding of "Love in Deed and Truth", Hanyang Foundation has been striving for education that can be completed with love. Therefore, Hanyang education is not proud of the abundance of knowledge. Instead, we value the education to be used wisely to neighbors, nation, and ethnic groups. Through the value education, each educational institute branches of Hanyang produced superior human resources, which have led to the modern history of Korea. We are proud to have played a pivotal role in the development of the country.
Each educational institution of our Hanyang does not satisfy with the current phase. By inheriting the tradition and history of the past, we are trying to get higher value-added education and the wisdom of education.
