President's Office

PARK Chan-wookPARK Chan-wook, PhD
Acting President
Vice President for Academic Affairs

Seoul National University has been committed to the mission of teaching and research since its inception in 1946. It also has been the driving force behind Korea’s economic and social development for these past 70 years. Seoul National University, with the admiration and support of the Korean people, is now making the leap forward to become a globally renowned university.

Within global academia, there is increasingly intense competition to take the lead in the fourth industrial revolution. Against this backdrop, it is no overstatement to say that the vitality of Seoul National University is essential to the future success of Korea.

Accordingly, Seoul National University will continue to nurture brilliant minds who can contribute to the development of Korean society and to the production of new knowledge.

We will never falter in our drive to meet the lofty expectations of the Korean people and to guide the spirit of the era.

Thank you.
