Lee Jin-Woo of the Global Center commented, “I would like thank the winning teams for a job well done as well as all of the students who participated in the ‘Global Challenger’ program and hope that they have broadened their horizons by traveling in various parts of the world.”  He went on to say, “I am proud to say that our university has been selected for the university education empowerment project in 2012 making it the fourth year in a row and truly hope that all of the students are given an opportunity to achieve their dreams.”

Why not take advantage of this great opportunity to travel around the world through this program?  More interest and participation in the ‘Global Challenger’ program will ultimately lead to the development and enhancement of KNU students.
