MOU QC Korea National Assembly PicSep16 2016

We are pleased to announce that Queens College has established a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Secretariat of the National Assembly of the Republic of Korea. The Office of the Secretariat is the government agency that supports the activities of the Korean National Assembly, including Assembly members' research activities and visits to other countries. 

A small formal ceremony to make the MOU official was held at Queens College on Friday, September 16, 2016. The event was attended by (left to right in the photo above) Mohamed Tabrani (Director of Education Abroad at Queens College), Sunghee Shin (Professor of Education at Queens College), Yoon-keun Woo (Secretary General of Korean National Assembly), Felix Mattos-Rodriguez (President of Queens College), Elizabeth Hendrey (Provost of Queens College), Pyong Gap Min (Director of RCKC and Professor of Sociology at Queens College), and William McClure (Dean of Faculty at Queens College). 

The purpose of the MOU is to develop academic/educational cooperation and to promote relations and mutual understanding between Queens College and the Korean National Assembly. Some of the activities will include mutual exchanges through seminars and workshops, briefings on public policy and scholarly topics, joint research projects, and mutual exchanges of research personnel and former and current officials.  

The Research Center for Korean Community (RCKC) will play an intermediary role between Queens College and the Korean National Assembly in fulfilling the content of the MOU. In addition, RCKC will most likely conduct research on behalf of the National Assembly.
