Milestones The 75-year path taken by Sunchon National University dedicated to talent cultivation
Sunchon National University was founded in 1935 as ‘Sunchon Public Agriculture School’ when U-Seok Kim Jong Ik donated a special land as an academic venue to cultivate talents and inspire national consciousness.

It then was renamed to Sunchon Agricultural Middle School (1946), Sunchon Agricultural High School (1951), Sunchon Agricultural Technical High School (1965), Sunchon Agricultural Polytechnic (1973) followed by an elevation to Sunchon Agricultural College in 1979 registering as a tertiary education institute.

In 1982, it fully fledged into a four-year university, starting anew with ten departments. In 1987, it established graduate schools and evolved into a full four-year university with five colleges in 1991. Graduate School of Education (1993), Graduate School of Industries (1994), Graduate School of Business & Public Administration (1995) and Graduate School of Information & Science (1996) opened up in series and doctor’s course was newly added in 1994.

The same year, Sunchon National University received 10 billion Won in contribution from POSCO for local talent cultivation with which Lifelong Education Center under Sunchon National University Academic Scholarship Foundation was established to provide re-training to local residents and contribute to local economic growth alongside Language Institute and Farming Education Center.

In 2001, Sunchon National University opened state-of-the-art Central Library, Center for Information & Electronic Calculation and built e-library to serve as sources for knowledge and information.
Drive for university reform and internal innovations led to Sunchon National University being designated as a specialized university in agriculture and awarded as party to government-run projects including BK 21. In 2005, Sunchon National University was ranked 17th out of 183 universities nationwide from the Ministry of Education, Science & Technology in the category of financial support and 10th among 44 national universities in school innovation.

In 2002, it was selected as a top-tier university in education and research attainments in assessment of national university’s own development plans, winning recognition as the education institute on the growth track.
