It is our great pleasure to announce the launch of the Korea Corner at Auburn University made possible through the financial support by the Korean Consulate General in Atlanta and University Outreach. Korea Corner will provide a variety of resources on Korea to Americans residing in the Auburn/Opelika and surrounding communities as well as Auburn University students. It is our expectation that the Corner will promote greater understanding of Korea and the Korean people among students, industry and the general public with the recent emergence of Korean automakers in the areas. Therefore, the primary purpose of the Corner is to increase accessibility of Korean culture by Auburn University students and community members. The Korea Corner is equipped with books, electronic materials, computers, TV screens, and Korean arts and crafts. The Korea Corner will also promote a variety of educational and cultural events such as special lectures and workshops. For members of the Korean community, the Corner will provide assistance in creating educational experiences designed to strengthen their connection to American culture and society.
We ask that you consider supporting the Korean Corner and its cultural and educational mission. Donations can be made in a variety of forms including outright gifts or gifts-in-kind. Please indicate the kind and level of your support below (form coming soon).
I hope you will choose to support our efforts and help us make an impact in developing meaningful relationships and promote a shared understanding between Koreans and the surrounding community. Thank you for your consideration and look forward to hearing from you soon.
Sincerely, Suhyun Suh, Coordinator, Korea Corner -and- Daniel (Dongwoo) Yu, Assistant Director, Global Leadership Training Initiative
