Chungkang College of Cultural Industries was founded in 1996 by the late Mr. Yeon-ho Lee, ex-president of Namyang Aloe. The college is based on the three principles of love for nature, love for human beings, and love for culture. Aspiring to embody his ancestors’ belief that education should be the foremost priority in allocating resources, and influenced by the Christian emphasis of the value of sharing, Mr. Lee regarded education as a lifelong project.
“If it’s such fun growing trees, how fun and rewarding must it be to cultivate human talent?”
Having enjoyed planting and raIsing trees throughout his life, Mr. Lee could not hide his happiness when he started cultivating human talent. Though he tragically left this world less than a year after founding the college, his vision has since taken root ever more deeply.
Chungkang was established based on the founder Mr. Yeon-ho Lee’s philosophy of ‘Love for Nature’,
‘Love for Human-beings’, and ‘Love for Culture.’ And, under those founding principles, it has grown by practicing the educational philosophy in which any forms of difference are fully accepted, no one is left behind, and all students have equal access to quality education.
Creation and sharing are not only the basic values that we are pursuing, but the most important topics of this age. We will strive to train outstanding individuals with such driving force and further assist them to become the cultural leaders of this country. Chungkang desires to realize the true meaning of creativity to seek constantly for new things and dedication to compassion and love for others.Hee-Kyung Chung, Ph.D.
