The Cen­ter for Kore­an Stud­ies has con­clud­ed a new aca­d­e­m­ic exchange and coöper­a­tion agree­ment with the Kore­an Lan­guage Edu­ca­tion Research Insti­tute of Seoul Nation­al Uni­ver­si­ty.

The agree­ment went into effect Decem­ber 27, 2007, with the exchange of signed copies of the agree­ment by Prof. Ho-min Sohn (seen on the left in the pho­to­graph at right), direc­tor of the Cen­ter for Kore­an Stud­ies, and Prof. Hyun-sik Min, direc­tor of the Kore­an Lan­guage Research Insti­tute.

The agree­ment pro­vides for the exchange of fac­ul­ty mem­bers and stu­dents for research, study, and teach­ing; exchange of infor­ma­tion, teach­ing mate­ri­als, and research pub­li­ca­tions; orga­ni­za­tion of sem­i­nars, work­shops, and con­fer­ences; and coöper­a­tive research, cul­tur­al, and edu­ca­tion­al activ­i­ties. It was imple­ment­ed under the terms of an exist­ing exchange agree­ment between the Uni­ver­si­ty of Hawai’i at Manoa and Seoul Nation­al Uni­ver­si­ty.

The Uni­ver­si­ty of Hawai’i main­tains aca­d­e­m­ic exchange agree­ments with more than a dozen insti­tu­tions of high­er edu­ca­tion in Korea.
