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 Triangle East Asia Consortium (TEAC) was established in 1972 to promote dialogue and collaboration between East Asian studies faculty at the three major research universities in the Triangle Area: Duke University, North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
UNC-Chapel Hill’s Department of Asian Studies offers an undergraduate minor concentration in Korean.
Several of Carolina’s 40+ Asia-related student organizations have a specific Korea focus. Korea-related student activities range from welcoming Korean scholars to addressing North Korea’s humanitarian crisis.
