Welcome,
and thank you for visiting the Inje University website.

With the goal to fulfill the mission of exploring knowledge and academic disciplines, Inje University has grown into a renowned academic institution recognized throughout the nation and its communities through efforts in research, educational infrastructure, and nurturing global talents. This feat was enabled by the founding mission from Paik Hospital,“saving the world through the healing arts,” as well as the university’s founding philosophy of “saving the world through love and virtue.” These noble ideals are the most valuable assets of the school, and principles that have supported it throughout the years.

Inje University will continue to abide by these principles, practicing spirit, and ethical values, while passionately working towards becoming a university with a rich history, thriving in a golden age.
Inje University will continue to grow into a school recognized and trusted in the community, a school that is beloved for its dedication to service and global exchange, a school that nurtures wise global talents, and a school for the Korean people and global citizens.

We ask you to take interest in the growth of the school, as well as the unwavering support and encouragement for its students, staff, and faculty.
