Chairman HAN Jae-sook said in her commemorative address, “Numerous universities are facing the grim reality of so-called cherry blossom ending. I think that this point of existence is the last golden time for university innovation. Universities should achieve full-scale innovation through selection and concentration. I hope that all members will gather their will and respond well.”



President CHOI Oe-chool said in his commemorative address, “Universities are facing new challenges and times of great transformation, such as decrease in school age population and drastic changes in government policies. I am convinced that such situation is not a crisis but an opportunity for YU. We are seeking various innovative measures for sustainable development of YU. Trust and cooperation of all YU members is very important for great transformation of the university structure and operation. Let's gather the wisdom of all members and create a period of opportunity for YU to take a leap forward.”
