Welcome to SUNY Korea!

It is my great honor to be the first president of this unique initiative. I invite you to explore our site and get to know what SUNY Korea has to offer you.

The commitment of the State University of New York (SUNY) to global engagement has led to the establishment of SUNY Korea to create a strong and dynamic presence in Korea.
