Michigan State University Global Korea Award

On Saturday, October 17, 2015, the 21st annual Global Korea Award Ceremony took place at Michigan State University (MSU). The Global Korea Award (GKA) was created by the Council on Korean Studies at MSU in 1995 to recognize individuals or groups who have made significant contributions to cross-cultural understanding, global education, and the well-being of Korean people around the world. The two recipients of this year's GKA were Professor Pyong Gap Min (the director of RCKC) and Professor Robert M. Oppenheim (Professor of Asian American Studies at the University of Texas at Austin). Past winners include professors of humanities and social sciences, promoters of Korean language education, politicians, medical doctors, missionaries, diplomats, activists, artists, and many others who have contributed to advancing the global understanding of Koreans.

The event was organized by the Council on Korean Studies at MSU and the Korean Student Organization at MSU, and it was sponsored by the Asian Studies Center as well as the Visiting International Professional Program at MSU. The Council on Korean Studies was established in 1992 to stimulate interest in Korea, to provide information about Korean cultural activities, to facilitate exchange programs between the U.S. and Korea, and to support programs related to Korea at MSU.
