He has also taught at the Graduate School of International Studies, Yonsei University (Korea) for 15 years as a tenured professor. Having been an international educator all his professional life, Dr. Kim is a strong proponent of the role that international education plays in nurturing leaders of the New Pacific Century. The New Pacific Century is a term he uses to argue that we are at a critical turning point where the rise of Asia and the relationship between the East and the West will play a critical role in shaping the 21st century. Following this belief, Dr. Kim founded APIS Seoul (in 2007) as the campus of the East and APIS Hawaii (in 2015) as the campus of the West, allowing our students to move freely between two campuses to take advantage of authentic global learning experiences and contexts.
