Social Service Courses

Social Service Courses were first initiated at SNU in the first semester of 2006. The main purpose of these courses is for students to go beyond the limited campus-centered education and show concern for neighboring peoples, ultimately maturing to be genuine, warm-hearted leaders who exercise social responsibility.

Student Action

As much as SNU is a student-centered University, IGSR recognizes the importance of student led community service and social responsibility. SNU serves to provide various programs and opportunities for students to be actively involved in expressing their concern for the society around them and grow as global leaders.

Global Social Responsibility Leadership Training

Global Social Responsibility Leader is defined as a leader who supports a community that puts into practice humanistic values that go beyond the concept of ‘my neighbor’ and ‘my country’ and instead connects the global village.
It allows for SNU students who are responsible for the next generation to understand both themselves and others and help them grow as global leaders who share the communal values of humanity and foster a global citizen consciousness.
“Me -> You(Others) -> Us(Neighbors) -> Global Community” expansion of leadership.
