Josai Establishes Academic Exchange Agreement with the PIJLC

On May 15, 2015, the Josai University Educational Corporation formed an academic exchange agreement with the Philippine Institute of Japanese Language and Culture Foundation (PIJLC).

PIJLC director, Mr. Philip B. Sanvictores, is the former president of the Philippine Federation of Japan Alumni (PHILFEJA) and current chairman of the ASEAN Council of Japan Alumni (ASCOJA). It is in conjunction with the latter that he was visiting Japan, making time to come to the Josai campus along with his wife to meet with Chancellor Noriko Mizuta.

The PHILFEJA was established in 1976 by former Philippine Ambassador to Japan Jose S. Laurel III, with the PIJLC formed as an extension of the Philippine-Japan Friendship Foundation (PJFF), for which Ambassador Laurel served as Chancellor, in 1992. The PIJLC is an organization formed to provide Japanese language education for the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) to support Filipino students with plans to study abroad. In recent years, however, in response to increased human resource needs in the Japanese industry, the PIJLC has been devoted to fulfilling the urgent demand of cultivating Japanese language Filipino teachers to train specialists for jobs in IT, manufacturing, the service industry, construction, tourism, and nursing and welfare. It is this venture that has yielded the current partnership with Josai. With the formation of this exchange agreement, the two institutions plan to pursue more programs on this front, in addition to faculty and student exchange.
