Currently, universities are in a crisis in the rapidly changing environment due to the decrease in the school-age population, the need for digital transformation of universities, and the demand to nurture new talents for the AI. future. This crisis could only be overcome when universities actively respond to the change and willing to practice innovation. Sangji University has always shown it’s potential in times of crisis.
