The Korea Forum promotes awareness, dialogue, and scholarly activities on Korea-related subjects at the University of North Carolina and beyond.

Since its founding, the Korea Forum has developed a multi-disciplinary community of scholars, teachers, graduate students and Korean diaspora in North Carolina through academic seminars, conferences, guest lectures, films series, and performances on various Korea-related topics. The Korea Forum also facilitates dialogue between academia and diverse local and global communities.

The Korea Forum hosts a wide variety of events and programs, including monthly meetings, the Korea Research Fellow program, the Korean-American Young Adult Leadership mentoring program and graduate student mentorship.
