Our Kim Il Sung University with the august name of President Kim Il Sung and great pride and honour as the alma mater of Chairman Kim Jong Il is now entering a new stage of its development under the care of the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un.

Over the last seventy years, Kim Il Sung University has played an important role in training of national cadres and scientific and technological personnel of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

The teaching staffs of the university are now making strenuous efforts to improve the educational conditions and environment as well as the teaching content and methods, and especially to develop the university into a research-oriented one with a full integration of education, scientific research and production.

Kim Il Sung University will conduct brisk exchanges and cooperation with universities and institutes of different countries in order to fulfill its responsibility for the development of the world's education and science.

The wise leadership of the Workers' Party of Korea and the socialist educational system provide a firm guarantee for Kim Il Sung University to successfully discharge its mission and duty as the university of the great leaders and the university of the people.

Kim Il Sung University will, in the future, too, uphold the Juche-oriented educational ideas and theories of President Kim Il Sung, Chairman Kim Jong Il and the respected Comrade Kim Jong Un as its invariable guiding principles and stand in the vanguard of the struggle to realize the plan of the Workers' Party of Korea for building a talent power.
