KHU collecting forms for global summer programKyung Hee University (KHU) is currently collecting applications for Global Collaborative 2015, its international summer program.
Centered on the theme “Humanity, Civilizations and Global Governance,” the course will run from July 6 to 29, and consist of 19 lectures across three sections: Humanity and Civilization; Peace and Global Governance; and Global Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development.
A number of scholars and officials from organizations worldwide will take part in the program this year, including philosopher and cultural critic Slavoj Zizek; Seoul National University (SNU) emeritus professor Hong Seung-soo; and Oxford University’s Amy McLennan, who are among the faculty who will lead the first section.
Conference of NGOs President Cyril Ritchie and Ramu Damodaran of the United Nations Academic Impact initiative will be responsible for lectures concerning Peace and Global Governance, while Ding Dou of Peking University will lead Global Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainable Development.
KHU launched its international program in 2006 in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania by concentrating on East Asia and global governance.
Since 2008, involvement from institutes, scholars and other organizations has continued to grow.
After the course wrap, some students may participate in an internship program in which they will be placed in Korean companies, NGOs and international organizations.
Applications are due by April 30. Korean students attending other domestic universities are also eligible to apply.
