Induk University is a university in Seoul, South Korea. It was established by Asian American writer Induk Pahk as "Berea in Korea" in 1963,[1][2] became the "Induk Institute of Design" in 1971,[3] and was renamed "Induk University" in 2009.[3] It is located in Nowon-gu,[3] along with a number of other educational institutes. The university provides a range of two- and three-year courses.[4]

Soo Jung Kim—creator of Dooly the Little Dinosaur and former president of the Korea Animation Producers Association—teaches at the university's Department of Animation.[5] Actor Shin Hyun-joon is an acting professor in the Department of Broadcasting and Entertainment.[6]

The university has a number of student clubs and business start-up clubs.[7] After the 2010 Chile earthquake students from the Department of Tourism and Leisure Management raised 800,000 won to help rebuild a school in Chile.[8]
