Konkuk University has engaged in the school management of the PSU since 1988.

Konkuk University plans to foster student and faculty exchanges with the PSU and promote PSU as one of the major universities in California with the appointment of the new president.

The former professor of the Seoul National University of Medicine became the 18th president of Konkuk University in September 2010.
