Funded by University for Creative Korea, the Social Impact Initiative for Global Creative Talent aims to foster social innovators by providing diverse curricular and extra-curricular programs within Underwood International College, Yonsei University's Techno-Art Division and Integrated Social Sciences Division. These two divisions were selected by the government in 2016 to be recipients of social innovation grants. Due to the Yonsei Center for Social Innovation's usage of government funds, programs and initiatives are restricted to the two above-mentioned divisions. However, students who double-major in any major within these two divisions would be allowed to participate in our initiatives and programs!

The Social Impact Initiative for Global Creative Talent comprises of the following entities:

  • Yonsei Center for Social Innovation
  • Design Factory Korea
  • Institute for Global Sustainability

The head of our initiative is Professor Michael Kim.
