James Joo-Jin Kim Program in Korean Studies promotes interdisciplinary research and teaching across the university community on issues related to Korea. Endowed by a generous gift from Mr. James Joo-Jin Kim in 2011, the Program (originally established in 1997 as Center for Korean Studies) advises the university on Korea-related initiatives, sponsors conferences and lectures by invited speakers, awards grants to faculty members and students, hosts visiting scholars and postdoctoral fellows, and undertakes community outreach effort toward a better understanding of Korea.
