Introduction

The Korean Language and Culture Center was first established as the Korean Language and Literature Research Institute in November 1972. The Center was initially an attachment to the College of Liberal Arts for the collection, organization, and propagation of data related to, as well as continuous research on, Korean language and literature.

After changing its name to the Korean Language and Culture Center, the Center expanded the scale and content of its operations. In addition to the operations of the Korean Language and Literature Research Institute, the Center has also integrated the operations of the Korean Language Consulting Office, which was established in 2005 to promote the use of the Korean language, which is a key factor for increasing national competitiveness in the 21st century and improving the language abilities of the public. The Center contributes to the research and propagation of the Korean language and culture in this global multicultural age. In particular, the Center carries out the following operations :

  • Collection, organization, and propagation of data about the Korean language and culture as well as related academic areas
  • joint research in and outside the Center
  • organization of research presentations, lectures, and courses
  • publication of research papers and reports
  • partnerships and joint research with domestic and international research groups
  • Korean language consulting and workshops for writing, speaking, and academic publication preparation
  • education programs for improvement of Korean language skills
  • Korean language education and instructor training for immigrants, local residents, elderly retirees, and underprivileged people
  • operation of a web site for accumulation and propagation of Korean language and cultural data.
