Starting with the first issue with the name of "The Kyungpook University Press" in May 1963, the English-language newspaper of KNU has tried numerous variations to keep up with the changing world. Now it meets readers on paper and on-line with the name of The KNU Times.

As the press is a public instrument that reflects and leads public opinion, a university newspaper should be a mirror that reflects the status of a university and an observer that makes a university what it should be. Especially in the rapidly globalizing world, an English newspaper has a heavy responsibility as a medium with which we can communicate with the world.

KNU is trying hard to overcome disadvantages of a local university and to develop into a prestigious university with international competitiveness. To achieve this goal, KNU has adopted global standards for all the sectors of university operation, such as education, research and administration.

KNU has tried to strengthen cooperation and academic exchange with prestigious universities overseas and invite prominent professors of foreign countries, so our students can learn from great scholars. We are also expanding classes taught in English and classes about Korean language and culture for international students studying at KNU. Through these efforts, KNU is realizing globalization of the campus with more than 2,800 KNU students who went abroad and 1,000 international students who are studying at KNU. At this point, we put substantial expectation into The KNU Times that will meet readers through papers and the internet.

From now on, The KNU Times is to play an important role as a medium that communicates with all the member of KNU regardless of nationality, a messenger that keeps the members informed of all sorts of issues in and outside of the university and a leader that guides the university to the right direction. Therefore, The KNU Times needs to make efforts to induce readers" participation and to reflect their interests.

Also The KNU Times should function as a bridge that connects us to Korean society. It should expand its class of readers from the members of KNU to local residents and foreigners. As Korean society is rapidly transforming into multicultural society, The KNU Times needs to contribute to expanding openness and magnanimity of the society.

As The KNU Times now can meet readers living across Korea and overseas as well as the members of KNU and local residents with its online issue, I hope that editors and reporters of The KNU Times will do their best with pride and sense of duty as representatives of Kyungpook National University.

I wish The KNU Times to contribute to advancement and globalization of Kyungpook National University reflecting wisdom and opinion of our members and to make further development.
