In the morning of January 28th, UNIST invited the residents of Jung-gu, the central district of Ulsan to attend its annual district information session to learn more about the official launch of UNIST, as a government-funded research institute.
The primary purpose of this event can be seen as an opportunity for UNIST to thank the city of Ulsan and its citizens for their endless support and interest in building UNIST, a world-class university specialized in science and technology.
By inviting the residents of Jung-gu to a community information session, UNIST hoped to ensure that the current capabilities and future directions of UNIST are being heard and understood by the Jung-gu community.
The event consists of a student-guided campus tour, followed by an informal MEET & GREET luncheon with UNIST students. Lasting approximately 30 minutes, the campus tour includes a visit to UNIST Museum, UNIST Central Research Facilities (UCRF), and a look at several academic facilities. It also included a welcome adress by UNIST President Mooyoung Jung and a greeting of gratitude by the student president on behalf of the UNIST Student Body.
President Jung states, “This event was meant to be a place of communication. I hope that you all find this meeting both informative and productive.” He continues, “We plan on inviting the rest of the community, including Dong-gu, Nam-gu, and Buk-gu to its District Information Session.”
