OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An administrator at the University of Central Oklahoma has been named an honorary consul by Korea.

Dennis Dunham, executive director of the Office of Global Affairs at UCO, will represent Korea in an official capacity as the Honorary Consul to Oklahoma, helping to build relationships between the country and the state.

Ambassador Park Suk-Bum, the Korean Consulate General in Houston, nominated Dunham for the position earlier this year. The U.S. State Department confirmed the appointment in November.

Dunham spent two years in Korea with the Peace Corps. And he worked closely with the ambassador in getting approval to establish UCO’s first international liaison office in Seoul, Korea.

Students from Korea now represent the third largest international group at UCO, and Korea is the top destination for UCO students studying abroad.
