Dear Rutgers Korean Graduate Students Association Members,

The Korea Society's program on Thursday, October 22, 2015, "New Strides in US-Korea Relations" with Ambassador Kathleen Stephens, at The Korea Society (950 Third Avenue, 8th Fl, NYC) will now be held at 9:00AM instead of previously advertised 12:00PM. 

Stanford University's Kathleen Stephens discusses the recent visit by ROK President Park Geun-hye to the United States and United Nations, issues in bilateral affairs, and cooperation on international challenges. Stephens, who served as the U.S. Ambassador to Korea from 2008-2011, speaks to her time in Seoul and reflects on how to best read developments on the Korean Peninsula.

Ambassador Stephens recently completed thirty-five years as a career diplomat in the U.S. Foreign Service. She was Acting Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs in 2012, and U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Korea, 2008 to 2011. She has served in numerous posts in Washington, Asia, and Europe. From 2005 to 2007 she was Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of East Asian and Pacific Affairs (EAP). While Deputy Assistant Secretary of State in the Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs (EUR) from 2003 to 2005, she focused on post-conflict and stabilization issues in the Balkans. She was Director for European Affairs at the National Security Council during the Clinton Administration. Her overseas postings included service in China, Korea, Yugoslavia, Northern Ireland, Portugal, and Trinidad & Tobago. Ambassador Stephens received the 2009 Presidential Meritorious Service Award. Other awards and recognition include the Korean government’s Sejong Cultural Prize (2013), and in 2011 the Pacific Century Institute’s Building Bridges Award, the Outstanding Achievement Award from the American Chamber of Commerce in Korea, and the Kwanghwa Medal of Diplomatic Merit from the Korean government. Her book, Reflections of an American Ambassador to Korea, based on her Korean-language blog, was published in 2010.

We would be happy to extend a discounted admission fee of $5 to students. Registration and light fare will be on offer starting at 8:30AM, and we would kindly request you to arrive by 9:00AM to be seated. Please register by writing to 'policy@koreasociety.org' with your name and Rutgers Korean Graduate Students Association as your affiliation to reserve your seats.

Thank you, and we hope you can join us!

Sincerely,

Meredith Ulrich
