The Centre for the Study of Korea was established in the fall of 2006 with the goal of promoting critical approaches to the research of Korea. The Centre also aims to develop pedagogical materials for teaching about Korea both in the university and to the public. The Centre welcomes participation from members of the university community as well as communities throughout the Greater Toronto Area.
