▲ Students participating in the last program
University is a good stage for students to practice social contribution. UOS Industry Cooperation Foundation (ICF) runs a program called the Warm-hearted Seoul Project. This project aims to nurture students’ ability to find and solve local problems along with community members. Through this hands-on educational experience, students have an opportunity to learn to cooperate with others from various departments while contributing to society by solving local problems.

The Warm-hearted Seoul Project was launched in 2013. From its beginning, the program drew high participation from students and community members, and it has yielded creative solutions to community problems. Last year, there were eight teams with 23 members. One of the teams, which called itself HIM ? Happiness in Middle School ? proposed a program to empower middle school students. Another team, Growth Factory, sought to increase green spaces.

This year, ICF has increased the number of teams by shortening individual team budgets. As part of the application process, teams must have a minimum four undergraduate students with one guiding professor to define their educational objectives. Each team should have no more than two participants with the same major, a policy that encourages interaction among diverse interests.

The deadline for applications was May 29. The project committee evaluated applications and selected 14 projects. The chosen teams will work from June to November. “We hope this project continues to promote local contributions” said Jung-en Park, an official at ICF.
