Improving the Quality of the University

Chung-Ang University continued its expansion throughout the 1960s. By 1965, the number of its Undergraduate Schools increased from four to six as its College of Liberal Arts & Science was split into the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Science & Engineering, and the College of Education.
Also, a sister middle school and a sister high school became its affiliate schools, and it added an affiliate elementary school to deliver consistent education from kindergarten to graduate school under the same foundation and philosophy. In February 1967, it established its Graduate School of Social Development to train specialized professionals and promote academy-industry cooperation. In 1968, the university’s undergraduate program expanded to have in it the College of Liberal Arts, the College of Science & Engineering, the College of Education, the College of Law, the College of Political Science & Economics, the College of Business Administration, the College of Agriculture, and the College of Pharmacy.
In 1971, the University added the College of Medicine to its list of Undergraduate Schools and took over Seong Shim Hospital to upgrade itself to one of the top universities in Korea.

Along with Chung-Ang’s expansion of college organization, it also expanded and enhanced its facilities. In July 1961, Jin Seon Hall and the University Theater were built, and the Social Development Hall was constructed in October of the same year. Furthermore, during its celebration of its 50th anniversary, it also unveiled the Blue Dragon Monument as a symbol of the school’s history and its new global mission. Seungdang Hall was also built around this time, and Bobst Hall, in December 1969. All these developments contributed to the quality improvement of the university.
