Josai Forms Academic Exchange with UCLA

On October 11th 2011, the Josai Educational Corporation established an academic exchange agreement with the UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) Terasaki Center for Japanese Studies.

This agreement was formed with the objective of increasing meaningful academic exchange between the two universities, including the exchange of faculty and students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as the exchange of academic resources.

Founded in 1919, UCLA is a state operated university located in Los Angeles and boasts the largest enrollment of any university in California.

Since its foundation in 1991, the UCLA Center for Japanese Studies has served as a forerunner in academic research on Japan and played an important role in deepening US-Japan relations by producing significant studies in such areas as cultural arts, history, sociology, and politics. In 2005, in recognition of a generous grant from Paul and Hisako Terasaki, the Center changed its name to the UCLA Paul I. and Hisako Terasaki Center for Japanese Studies, which it retains to this day.

Beginning with the University of California, Riverside, Josai has already established academic exchanges with numerous universities in the United States, working with them to form various study abroad programs, summer seminars, foreign language programs, and internships. We are hoping that this latest agreement with UCLA will yield even more opportunities to expand our international education curriculum.
