Council on Korean Studies

The Council on Korean Studies was established to support two prime endeavors of higher education: to encourage diversity and to build global linkage. 


Objectives

The main objectives of the Council are:

  • To promote Korea among the people of Michigan and the United States;
  • To establish important networks of information about Korean society and cultures;
  • To sponsor exchange programs between Korea and the United States, including artists, writers, and natural and social scientists;
  • To provide an institutional support base for various programs on Korean Studies at MSU and at other U.S. universities; and
  • To encourage graduate and undergraduate education on Korea as promising outreach programs.
