Every university has its own slogan, a flag, and a symbol of an animal that represents the institution. These symbols represent the educational philosophy and foundational vision of the university, and act as the locus of university members' unity and pride.
Exemplified in its name "Dankook", there is a strong sense of national pride within this university. The driving force behind Dankook is that of love and service for this country, and passion for our culture.
Based on Korean folklore, Dankook believes in the necessity of preserving traditional and ethnic values, as well as the values of endurance, diligence, self-support, and courage.
