“When human beings discover the Origin and live as that Origin, everyone will be one and live with the gratitude for one’s own country and the world; recovery of the Origin leads to Oneness where living for others will occur, and this is the education of human completion.”
To solve many problems facing at the end of growth and abundance that threaten the survival of mankind, needless to say, we need a collaborative effort, but the most crucial and fundamental point is each individual’s consciousness has to awaken and the one’s thinking and action have to change. This is the part that education has to take a role in.
Now, education has to come back to its own original function. As Gilpin Faust, a former President of Harvard University, said, “Education is not to make men carpenters so much as to make carpenters men”, the original role of education is to nurture a person of humanity.
When each human changes their mind from selfish to altruistic and self-centered to thinking others and the whole first, the problems mankind faces will be solved fundamentally in sequence, and we will be able to build the future of coexistence that individuals and community are happy together.
The ASHC has been established to contribute to the creation of a society where all humankind can achieve the dignity and happiness of all human beings together and create a happy coexistence society by realizing and supporting the role of education. It is not a paradigm of competition and success, but rendering services to opening a new horizon of education that fosters talented people with dedication and consideration, tolerance and communication, wisdom and creativity, and whole-consciousness.
The ASHC is an organization for academic research and practice established by professors, teachers, scholars and experts who are dedicated to contributing to realizing true humanistic character education and human completion education. More than 200 scholars and professors in the fields of humanities, science, health care, and culture and arts, elementary, middle and high school teachers, and experts from all walks of life attended the founding general meeting in KAIST on November 8, 2008. On June 12, 2008, we obtained the approval of the public interest corporation of the Daegu Metropolitan Office of Education.
In addition, we carry out various projects necessary for the purpose of this corporation.
