On June 16, 2015, Professor William Connor, acting dean, and Ms. Mimi Hui, executive director of the English Language Program of the Faculty of Extension, University of Alberta, visited Kumamoto University and met with Professor Kazuki Takashima, Vice President for International Affairs, and Professor Shoshi Mizokami, Vice Dean of the Faculty of Engineering.
Since the signing of an academic exchange agreement in 2001, we have deepened our relationship with the University of Alberta in various ways, such as inviting researchers and faculty members from and sending ours to the university, and sending our students to participate in the English and Cultural Seminar at the University of Alberta.
During this meeting, the two universities shared each other’s thoughts about ongoing and future exchange programs and agreed to further promote friendly relations.
On the same day, a presentation session was held to introduce the English and Cultural Seminar at the University of Alberta scheduled from August 6 to September 3, 2015. Many of the students who will participate in this seminar attended this session.
