In 1897, a missionary named William Baird established ‘Soongsil Institute’ in Pyongyang. It was recognized as the 'first four-year university in Korea' in 1908. In 1938, it was the only university in Korea that voluntarily abolished the school against shrine worship and kept the national pride and loyalty. As the only separated university in Korea, the school has restored the Soongsil Campus in Pyongyang with the hope of unification.
