Background and Significance

Fulfilling Ewha's educational spirit and global leadership
Ewha is setting off with its 125-year history of women's education and its spirit of sharing and service to carry out the essential role of women's education and network expansion through educating promising women leaders and taking up the responsibility as a global women's educational institute.

Joining the International effort to advance women's rights and to make a gender-equal society
The UN's Millenium Development Goals (MDGs) and the founding of UN Women called upon an international effort to strengthen women's education and abilities. Ewha educates future global leaders through the following three categories of "scholar - policy expert - activist": the degree program called EGPP (Ewha Global Partnership Program), the Ewha-KOICA program for women government employees from developing countries and the EGEP for non-governmental public sector workers.

Advancing women's education based on gender perspective and strengthening partnerships
EGEP is an education program to reinforce the capabilities of women activists. It seeks to improve women-based knowledge and practical abilities of women workers through the international expansion of women's education, and to contribute to the international solidarity and partnership needed to solve women's issues and realize a gender-equal society through mutual exchanges and networking.
