    Kyungpook National University is committed to becoming a leading, global university based on its proud and lasting traditions of truth, pride, and service. Since its establishment in 1946 as a comprehensive national university representing the region of Daegu and Gyeongbuk Province, KNU has been striving to lead Korea’s national and international development by fostering talented graduates who can serve as global community leaders. 

    KNU is transformed through innovation, communication, and its impression on the world. It began as a regional education hub founded with the support of residents, and quickly gained a strong reputation as the best university south of Seoul. KNU became known for producing the top Korean intellectuals of the age, representing the Republic of Korea with pride. Our goal is to reaffirm the status long-held by KNU, bringing change and the spirit of innovation to the world. We will become a university that inspires people the world over with our achievements. We are a globally-oriented, knowledge-driven university. We are now a global competitor; as such, we have to foster research capabilities that can compete with global standards and cultivate talent that will lead the world. KNU will be a university that not only creates knowledge but also leads the stream of intelligence as it takes a step ahead.

    As a university with one of the nation’s largest campuses and operating infrastructures, we strive to impress the region, the nation, and the world. We put investment in human resources above all else. One of our greatest assets is the people we educate. KNU will give first priority to concentrated investment in human resources development, producing talented individuals with the wisdom of cultural insight and scientific technology; passionate professionals who enjoy a challenge; people who will lead the world with creativity and innovation. In addition, we will create an educational and professional environment in which all people-students, professors, and staff of the university-trust and cooperate with each other.

    As of October 2019, the University has 17 colleges, 2 independent departments and 12 graduate schools with 30,719 students enrolled in undergraduate programs, 6,603 on graduate programs, plus 3,230 professors and 463 administrative staff.
