Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
Kyung Hee University recognizes the United Nations' role in its effort to obtain universal peace and understanding. In this vein, the university seeks to emulate those ideals in its educational system. The university's emblem is thus modeled after that of the United Nations, and its school song, which praises peace and liberty, resonates with its commitment to those ideals.
The university pursues the United Nations' ideals through its commitment to creativity, progress, and cooperation, thereby hoping to promote the role of intellectuals and academics in world affairs. To engage intellectuals directly with world events, the university has initiated several international movements, especially the Global Cooperation Society Movement (GCS), which is comparable to Oxford University's Moral Rearmament Movement (MRA). The GCS strives to protect human rights, build a society of freedom and equality, and ultimately, attain world peace. The Movement for Better Living and the Movement for a Brighter Society (both initiated by Chancellor Choue) also embody the humanistic spirit of the university.
Kyung Hee University strives to bridge cultural and social gaps by promoting mutual understanding and prosperity. As a result, the university encourages frequent exchanges with sister schools overseas to facilitate the exchange of ideas. These activities spread a shared belief in the value of learning.
