The position of Vice-President of External Affairs was created in order to lift Ewha? standards internationally by actively building intimate relations and engaging in exchanges with external institutions.
Yoo has numerous plans to put into action. ?ore professors will be invited, providing students with a hint of the lives of collegians abroad by covering a wider range of fields. Students will be able to increase their visions, says Yoo.
As well as the students, professors of Ewha will also be able to experience an increase in the opportunities to advance their expertise. Many of the renowned professors invited by Ewha are editors of top foreign journals. Thus, tips and comments for successful papers can be provided by the foreign professors through the exchange program.

Scalapino, professor emeritus at UC Berkeley, and three other distinguished scholars visited Ewha, highly valuing the university? potential.
With the confidence gained from these visits, the school proposed to nine distinguished scholars the positions of honorary distinguished professors, which all of them accepted. ?e are the leading medium of women? education and it has been proven.
