To achieve the vision, three innovations were presented: ▲digital convergence innovation ▲startup incubator innovation ▲ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) practice innovation.
President Chang announced a plan to establish a “Digital Humanity Center” that converges the humanities, society, culture, art, and science with the goal of “digital convergence innovation.”
In addition, as part of the “startup incubator innovation,” ▲startup support system ▲100 alumni mentoring program ▲“115th anniversary Sookmyung vision special lecture series” consisting of 15 CEOs of leading domestic and foreign companies will be promoted.
Lastly, for “ESG practice innovation,” plans such as ▲establishing a “global standard” for sustainable universities ▲creating a “global Sookmyung campus” ▲building a “global online education system” were also revealed in this video.
President Chang said, “It is difficult to promise a sustainable future for ‘digitization’ that is not based in humanity,” and “with the goal of the 2030 vision of Sookmyung, we will dash toward the ‘road of new challenges to lead the world’ like our predecessors 115 years ago.”
The “115th Anniversary Ceremony” was held in three parts at the Hansangeun Lounge on the 7th floor of the Centennial Hall from 9:30 am on the same day.
