Inje University was established by Paik Hospital, the first private public interest foundation in Korea. The founding mission of Inje university is to “save the world through humanitarian medical practices and with benevolence and virtue.” Benevolence and virtue are still the most central tenets of Inje education, on the basis of which human education can be shaped and fulfilled. The concept of benevolence is only complete when fully integrated with that of righteousness, courtesy, and intellect. These four virtues are the fundamental ones that enable a person to grow as a perfect individual.
