Exchange program underway
with South Korea media institute
Officers from Dong-Ah Institute of Media and Arts (DIMA), South Korea,
visited the College of Communications in February as part of a program that
started with a visit from Dean Rick Pullen, the college; Dr. Anthony Fellow,
Department of Communications chair; and Professor Dean Kazoleas, Public
Relations, in fall 2008.
The purpose was to establish relations that might lead to future student
and faculty exchanges.
Following the fall visit, a delegation of Sejin Lee, president; Miran Yang,
director of International Affairs; and Johngmin Jung, staff member in
International Affairs, visited CSUF to meet faculty, students and administrators.
Lee met with President Milton Gordon and Vice President Ephraim
Smith and signed a Memorandum of Understanding.
“Dong-Ah Institute has incredible broadcasting facilities and has its own
production company. The beautiful campus outside Seoul would benefit out
students greatly,” said Pullen.
Kazoleas served as a visiting professor at DIMA when on the faculty at
Illinois State University and was instrumental in establishing this relationship.
