Through its comprehensive experimental education mission, the University of New Haven has offered its students many prospects to enhance their college experience through internships and study abroad opportunities.

The exchange agreement was signed by President Kaplan and KNPU president and chief superintendent general Cheon-Ho Suh on the West Haven Campus on July 30, 2012.

Over the summer, the university signed an exchange agreement with the Korea National Police University (KNPU), admitting 30 Korean students to study criminal justice at UNH.

Ketryk Wilder, a sophomore at UNH was one of only two students chosen to attend KNPU this fall. “This will be a completely unique experience,” Wilder said. “I am more excited than worried. It will be challenging and since this is a police academy, I will have to continue to work on my physical and mental strength.”

“Korea will be a well-tailored opportunity for me to take the next step in experimental education,” Wilder continued. “It will allow me to face new challenges and obstacles and become the person I want to be.”

The Korean National Police University was founded in 1981 and admits 120 South Korean students each year between the age of 17 to 20 who are high school graduates and have proven scholastic abilities. KPNU requires students to successfully complete a four-year course of study in order to graduate.

Beginning its study abroad program in 1984, KPNU now sends students to police organizations in many countries, such as West Germany, France, Spain, Japan and the United States.

UNH and KPNU have shared a close bond prior to this exchange agreement, hosting the Asian Association of Police Studies (AAPS) conferences—KNPU in 2010 and UNH in 2011.

The exchange agreement was signed by President Kaplan and KNPU president and chief superintendent general Cheon-Ho Suh on the West Haven Campus on July 30, 2012.

“We are delighted to expand our association with KNPU as there is much expertise and research to be shared,” said UNH President Steven H. Kaplan. “Our students learn a great deal from foreign students who come to UNH and have much to learn from studying abroad.”
