The Kwan Um School of Zen(KUSZ) is an international school of Zen centers and groups, founded in 1983 by Seung Sahn Soen Sa Nim.

The schools international head temple is located at the Providence Zen Center in Cumberland, Rhode Island, which was founded in 1972 shortly after Seung Sahn first came to the United States (then in Providence).

The Kwan Um style of Buddhist practice combines ritual common both to Korean Buddhism as well as Rinzai Zen, and their morning and evening services include elements of Hua-yen and Pure Land Buddhism. While the Kwan Um Zen School comes under the banner of the Jogye Order, the school has been adapted by Seung Sahn to the needs of Westerners. According to James Ishmael Ford, the Kwan Um School of Zen is the largest Zen school in the Western world.
