Building a happy and humane society that transcends the boundaries of modern civilization is a common task for humanity. Since its founding, Kyung Hee has consistently carried out community service activities since its founding. Kyung Hee has continued to move forward, Starting starting with the “Anti-illiteracy movement,” the “Reforestation Movement,” the “Rural Enlightenment Movement” in 1950’s, the “Better Life
  Movement” in 1960’s, the “Global Common Society Movement” in 70’s and 80’s, and the “Neo-Renaissance Movement” in the 90’s, Kyung Hee has continued to move forward.

The groundbreaking for the UN Peace Park and Global NGO Complex in 2004 served as an opportunity for the formation of a “Kyung Hee Volunteer Network” that systemized local community service activities. Programs included a “Short-term Intensive Overseas Volunteer Corps”, the “Kyung Hee Community Action Partnership, ”“The Humanities for Citizens Program” to meet the needs of the underprivileged in our society, the “Nature Adventure at the Museum” program, the “One Fine Day” donation program (in partnership with Beautiful Foundation) & the “Kyung Hee University - City NGO Internship Program” at the Graduate School of Public Policy and Civic Engagement.

The Kyung Hee Global Service Corps (GSC) was launched in September 2010 to carry on Kyung Hee’s tradition of “Scholarship and Peace” and expand the social contributions of university in the 21st century. GSC brings together a “global praxis” for global sharing and contribution, community partnerships with the local community, a Medical Service Program for medical assistance and an On-line Service Program to reduce the limits of time and space. The GSC will establish a new paradigm for the university’s social contribution.
