Thanks to the love of the people, Pusan National University was able to turn on its light for academic research and truth on the beautiful skirts of Geumjeongsan (Mt.) 72 years ago. Amidst the ruins of war at a time when mere survival was difficult, the founding principle of truth, freedom and service of the first president of Pusan National University In-Ku Yun, the desire for education among the people, and the generous support of local businesses became the pillar of today’s Pusan National University.
