Stony Brook University, one of the flagships of the United States’ largest comprehensive university system (SUNY), opened a new Korea campus in 2012 that it now uniquely shares with 3 other world-class universities. SUNY Korea students spend three years at the Korea campus and one year at the New York campus, graduating with a Stony Brook degree and setting themselves up to work more easily in the West or Far East immediately upon graduation. This presentation addresses progress and growth of the campus, as well as potential for replication in other Asian countries.
