In November 2004, Ewha placed second, just behind Sogang University, on a National Customer Satisfaction Index (NCSI) survey of educational services in 11 schools. Ewha received high marks for networking with other schools, for recruiting high quality staff, and for customizing student services through its portal system and multi-function ID cards.
In September 2004, Ewha ranked first in the JoongAng Ilbo's nationwide evaluation of universities social welfare departments. Ewha received the highest marks in faculty research, educational environment, financial systems and facilities, and public reputation. Likewise, in both 1999 and 2002 Ewha placed tops in social welfare department evaluations by the KCUE and the JoongAng Ilbo, respectively.
In 2003, Ewha's College of Education received overall tops in a survey conducted by the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development (MOE) and the Korean Educational Development Institute (KEDI). The division scored high in educational curriculum and courses, professors and students, educational environment and financial support systems.
In 2000, the KCUE's law department evaluation placed Ewha as number one among 79 other universities nationwide. Ewha's law department was highly estimated in its staff and educational environment, more specifically, the quality and size of its full-time staff, financial support for research, and courses.
Thus several component colleges at Ewha have proven worthy according to various criteria set by these prestigious institutions. However, it has only been so long since these national evaluations started to take root in the minds of the public as events to be noted each year. They have yet firmly established a reputation for impeccably impartial and reliable evaluation standards. Also, to gain respect and attention from every educational institution nationwide, it would take much more than a superficial show of graphs and articles to impress the real worth that each university holds for its students.
