Korean Americans

Date: November 11, 2005          Time: 12:00PM to 6:00PM

Place: Skylight Room, CUNY Graduate Center

365 Fifth Avenue, Manhattan (Corner of 34th Street)


More than 25,000 students at CUNY are of Asian heritage, a significant percentage of which trace their lineage to Korea.  The rich and diverse culture in this region has brought rigor and excitement to New York City.  At the same time, this emerging community also encounters specific needs that must be addressed.

This is the first attempt at CUNY to bring together scholars and professionals to discuss the many facets of this vibrant community.  Session topics include intergenerational transition, emerging Korea history and its cultural impact, as well as organization and empowerment issues.  The goal is to build a stronger and better bridge between academia and the Korean American community.  Students, faculty and community leaders are encouraged to attend this important conference to ensure continual focus on research and services related to this dynamic community.
