Country South Korea
Konkuk University is one of the leading private universities located in Seoul and Chungju. The Seoul campus is located in the southeastern part of Seoul, near the Han River, and is served by a metro station of the same name. The Seoul campus has 11 undergraduate colleges and 13 graduate schools, whereas the GLOCAL campus in Chungju is composed of four undergraduate colleges and four graduate schools.
In May 1946, Konkuk University was established as Chosun School of Politics (조선정치학관), a junior college for future political leaders, by Dr. Yoo Seok-chang. Thirteen years later, the school became a “comprehensive university” and changed its name to Konkuk (建國), which means “founding a nation.” As strong believers in the role of higher education in maintaining Korea's sovereignty, the founder and his supporters chose the name in the hopes that Konkuk graduates would build and serve the nation. As of 2016, Konkuk University has two campuses – the main campus in central Seoul and the Glocal campus in Chungju — with approximately 29,000 students enrolled.
