Korea-America Student Conference

The 15th annual Korea-America Student Conference, KASC, will bring up to 30 Korean and American college students together in South Korea and the US. This conference consists of two parts: a one-week Summer Virtual Programming that will be held in the beginning of July 2022 and the In-Person Conference portion which will take place in Incheon and Seoul, South Korea; and Chicago, Illinois from July 23 to August 5, 2022.

The theme of the upcoming conference is “Multifaceted Identities: Discovering Self Through Technology, Community, and Society to Create Sustainable Legacies”. The Virtual Conference will last 2-3 hours each day and delegates will participate in orientation programming. This includes group bonding activities, meetings with round table groups, and hearing from influential guest speakers. During the In-Person Conference portion, delegates will travel to the ROK and US where they will participate in seminars, roundtable discussions, tours and cultural activities to increase intercultural understanding. Over the course of two week, delegates will have the unique opportunity to engage in academic, cultural, and professional exchange with professionals, scholars, and experts from both the ROK and the US.

Throughout the conference, delegates are to discuss, explore, and collaborate on several pressing bilateral and global topics with specific relevance to both the US and ROK.

Delegates will then present their joint solutions to a panel of experts and the general public at the conclusion of the conference during the Final Forum.

KASC seeks to achieve a diverse delegation, and all majors and academic levels are encouraged to apply. The official language of the conference is English. No prior experience with Korean Studies or Korean language is necessary.
