On September 1, the school appointed Professor Ahn Jungoh of German Studies as the 16th Sejong vice chancellor of Korea University. Ahn Jungoh, the new Sejong vice chancellor, graduated from the Department of German Language and Literature of Korea University and received a Bachelor’s degree of German Language Studies from Korea University, and a doctorate in Philosophy from the University of Wuppertal, and was appointed as a professor of German Studies at Korea University in 1995.


The new vice chancellor has worked as the superintendent of Hoyeon Dormitory Accomodation, the Head of the Sejong Office, the corporate auditor for the Korean Association of German Studies, the Foremen of Culture Contents, and as a member of the Korea University Council Committee and the Sejong Lifelong Education Center of Korea University. All of his work has laid the foundation for the development of this campus. In addition, in the suburbs, he has worked as an active researcher, including as chairman of the Korean Text Language Association and president of the German Academy of Sciences.

In his inauguration speech, Ahn said, " We will strive to maximize the depth of the research and education level of Korea University Sejong campus and try our best for the implementation of a campus which reflects a more creative and complex paradigm."

In addition, he declared that he would concentrate on the next three factors during his two-year term:  Meticulous preparation for the 2nd college evaluation period in the first half of 2018, diversification of the fiscal income of Sejong campus and creation of a new source of revenue, and a new characterization of the Sejong campus.

The term of the vice chancellor Ahn Jeongoh ends on August 31, 2019.
