Doing Our Best to Build
a Strong University for the Future

Andong National University is the only national university in the Gyeoungbuk region with about 70 years of history. We have made remarkable progress through the ceaseless effort and passion of our members, and we have been highly ranked among regional universities. Our university is now preparing for its next milestone. With the relocation of the Gyeongsangbuk-do Provincial Office to our city, Andong National University will become a national university in closest cooperation with the provincial government.

We are proud of the fact that we have improved the quality of education through various nationally funded projects, such as the Specialty Project for Regional Universities (CK-1), the Educational Capacity Enhancement Project, the Project for Leading Universities to Advance Undergraduate Course Education, and so on. Through these programs, many students have participated in extra curricular study programs covering practical training, industrial-academic relations and cultivation of character.

Andong National University is now beginning a new future, together with the city of Andong, to greet the new provincial governmental era. We will spare no effort in passionately building a powerful university, “FORCE ANU,” which is dedicated to the local community, the nation and humanity, with organized administrative services, leading research, creative education and efficient management.

Thank you for your interest and continued support.

Kwon Tai-hoan, Ph.D.
President of Andong National University
