The Korea-America Student Conference (KASC) is a student-led academic and cultural student exchange program with a focus on hands-on leadership training. Every July, 50 students equally represented from the U.S. and Korea gather for a month-long conference to discuss issues pertinent to the bilateral relationship. Together as a group, the delegation travels throughout the U.S./Korea while researching 5 specific roundtable topics and meeting with various experts. At the end of the conference, each roundtable group presents creative solutions to current bilateral issues before a panel of judges and a general audience. This year, guided by the theme “Introspection: Opportunity to Learn, Grow, and Prosper”, KASC will convene in South Korea, exploring four unique regions of the country.
