Hallym University was founded with the ideal of cultivating students of rich character and creative thinking, and of advancing academic and cultural promotion. For this purpose, the University set the following three objectives as its founding educational mission:
First, to enable students to develop a broad cultural perspective, good judgment, moral ethics, and physical vitality.
Second, to foster a positive attitude in our students as they address a changing world, in order to promote research and education in close cooperation with other research institutions at home and abroad.
Third, to endeavor to produce students who will contribute to their own individual development, national prosperity, and, ultimately, to the welfare of the human race.
