img“See Globally, Educate Globally 
Handong Global University has been writing a new history since its foundation twenty years ago. Our vision is to show love towards our neighbors and to change the world by maximizing both students’ and professors’ talents.
HGU has uniquely contributed to the advancement of undergraduate education by creatively using global human resources for a holistic education that develops both character and knowledge. In addition, HGU has been drawing attention with its innovative educational curriculum that advances the 21st century’s requirement of learning and problem-solving in a globalized era.
Competency is strengthened not with knowledge-delivery education styles or teaching by rote memorization but with practical education that guides students in solving problems. HGU helps students build their competencies through project-based courses and nurtures well-balanced talents that play an important role in the world. I extend my warmest gratitude to you for your interest and support for HGU.
