On September 15th at 2 p.m., Sungkyunkwan University (SKKU) held a declaration ceremony for VISION 2030 at the Humanities and Social Sciences Campus. Due to the coronavirus disease 2019, only a few personnel attended the event on the spot, and it was live-streamed on YouTube. SKKU presented “a global leader who creates future social values through creative challenges and innovations” as their vision for the next ten years and announced their plans to become “The Global Leader, SKKU”. The vision was carefully developed, considering the opinions of domestic and foreign experts. In addition, SKKU suggested specific ways to achieve their vision through four goals: 1) innovation of university education, 2) research-oriented leading university, 3) win-win partnership, and 4) advancement of university brand. The below chart explains what each goal is and how to achieve it:

Opinions on VISION 2030
President Shin Dong-ryeol said, “The VISION 2030 declaration ceremony will serve as a cornerstone for SKKU to cultivate creative talents who will lead the future and to move toward a world-class prestigious university. SKKU will fully support the plans to meet its goals.” The SKKU alumni association, on behalf of 240,000 alumni, praised the declaration of VISION 2030 and expressed their will to provide full material and economic support for making SKKU produce the first Nobel Prize Laureate. They hoped that the declaration of VISION 2030 would mark a milestone in SKKU history. Most of the students also showed a positive response to the event, leaving comments such as “I am proud of being a student of SKKU,” “I sincerely support the VISION 2030” on YouTube. However, some students raised the question about the effectiveness of the plans. A student named Kim from the College of Economics said that transforming all lectures into blended classes seems to be rash since most of the existing blended courses remain ostensible. Therefore, the headquarter needs to improve their vision and plans by listening to various opinions and move towards making SKKU the global leader, as everyone wishes.
