The World Miss University is an international beauty contest held annually in Seoul, South Korea since 1986. The event is organized by World Miss University Organizing Committee, headquartered in Manhattan, New York. The event is held to select representatives for the World Miss University Peace Corps, which was created to commemorate the United Nations’ resolution to celebrate 1986 as the International Year of Peace.
The Peace Corps representatives work collaboratively in youth empowerment and development in their countries with the aim of achieving societal development goals.
