“There are more than 3‚000 foreign students in our school but except for the programs hosted by the Office of International Affairs, there are few programs that foreign students can independently participate in. We thought that through this project, foreign students can not only participate voluntarily, but also counter issues concerning the society around the world‚” said the director Lee Min-ku. If you are a foreign student and have an idea regarding volunteer projects that concern social issues, contact the Social Innovation Center.
