The public is invited to the October 19 wrap up session for the internationalization training program for Japanese university staff and faculty. This training program was held in June in both Japan and the U.S. with the support from the U.S. Embassy. Four program participants will be featured as presenters and panelists. They are among the 29 staff and faculty members from national, public, and private universities throughout Japan who participated in the program. The speakers will share knowledge that they gained during the 10-day training from the practitioners’ point of view. This wrap up session may serve as the basis for future discussions.

Please come and join us. We hope you get ideas for the internationalization of higher education in Japan from the current administration practices of a U.S. university.
