MARTIN, Tenn. — CHANCELLOR VISITS KOREA – Dr. Keith Carver, chancellor of the University of Tennessee at Martin, visited Seoul, South Korea, in mid-October accompanied by Amy Fenning, director of the Office of International Programs and International Admissions. They spent time with officials from Hansung University on Oct. 16 to solidify the existing relationship between the two institutions. Hansung University has sent short-term international program students to UT Martin for several years now, and UT Martin actively exchanges students with Hansung University each year.
