Message from the Provost

Welcome to George Mason University Korea.

Among one of the most innovative tier-one research universities in the U.S., George Mason University offers vibrant educational programs right here in Songdo. Our goal is to equip our students with the skills necessary to become successful global leaders. George Mason University Korea is an essential part of George Mason University’s global strategy. For our faculty and students in Virginia, the campus is a gateway to experience Asia; for students entering our Korean campus, it is a gateway to the U.S. and beyond. We accomplish this through strong academic connections and alignment between our Fairfax and Songdo campuses, regulating degree completion goals, and facilitating robust faculty and student exchanges.

We are working hard to support our incoming and current students at George Mason University Korea. We continue to increase need- and merit-based scholarships, expand and diversify our programmatic offerings not only through George Mason University Korea courses, but also cross-registration agreements with other IGC institutions, and our online platform with the Fairfax campus. We continue to build faculty talents in the programs we offer while increasing different forms of interaction for our U.S. faculty, including special topic seminars, symposia, short courses, and workshops.

Over the past six months our career development staff has worked closely with students to ensure successful post-graduate outcomes. A Mason degree prepares our students for success beyond the classroom, and it will continue to do so.

Our commitment is to build the George Mason University Korea campus as a global education hub and world-class educational institution. With your continued support, we are confident that we will achieve our goals and deliver on our promise to an exceptional Mason experience.

Best regards,

S. David Wu
Provost and Executive Vice President
George Mason University
