We will fly toward a higher vision :
we will become a proud contributor to the international art scene
Korea National University of Arts (K-Arts) has served as home to prominent Korean artists inspiring their creativity. It has also been fulfilling its mission of fostering and aspiring young artists blessed with great passion and potentials. Despite its short history, K-Arts has accomplished remarkable achievements, demonstrating great enthusiasm based on its conviction in the importance of art education. Creating such a university is like planting the seed of a magnificent tree that will take firm root to nourish the world.
K-Arts will nurture an optimum educational environment in which professors teach with unparalleled capabilities and passion and students exhibit their potential to the full. By doing so, K-Arts will create a fertile breeding ground tailored to the needs of each individual student, thereby helping each of them realize their goals and ideals as internationally recognized professional artists.
An equally significant mandate of this institution is to provide students with chances to better appreciate the public benefits of the arts by expanding bilateral exchanges with prestigious universities across the world and encouraging them to participate in global volunteer programs. These programs will help our student stand tall in the international arena.
I also feel that it is incumbent on art schools to educate their students so that they can widely propagate the beauty of the arts, using their talents to make the world a more beautiful place. To this end, the school will establish a system to support both students and alumni to the fullest extent.
