Our History

The Korean Council for University Education (KCUE) was established during a period of social turbulence in the 1980s as it became widely recognized that the country needed a privately-led,
cooperative university organization rather than government-led university regulation.


The Council was thus founded in 1982 as a mechanism to facilitate government-university dialogue and inter-university cooperation.

The Council was then legally consolidated in April 1984 through the Korean Council for University Education Act.
