HUFS President Park Jeong-Woon traveled to New York, Washington D.C., and Los Angeles from July 22 (Friday) to August 3 (Wednesday), 2022, participating in the entrance ceremonies of HUFS Global CEO (GCEO) programs and meeting with alumni associations across the country.
On July 30 (Saturday), 2022, President Park met with the LA GCEO Student Council Chair Sally Kim and other members of the program. During the meeting, President Park encouraged those students who have experienced two years of academic disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and returned to the 15th GCEO program, and all participants were able to share their opinions on the program’s continuous development.
The visit was meaningful to President Park as he was able to reconfirm the level of connection with and affection for HUFS of the alumni in the U.S., who have raised about USD 3 million, or about KRW 4.1 billion, for the development of the school after his inauguration. It was also meaningful for the GCEO alumni now leading successful careers in their respective cities because his visit gave them an opportunity to seek ways to contribute to the development of their alma mater.
