Program Goal

Asia— a region expanding their global presence We nurture next-generation world leaders who can deepen understanding of the region and confront complex global issues

Coming up now for almost 30 years from the end of the Cold War, it feels as if world history is once more entering a new phase. The signs include moves to halt and reverse the shifts toward globalization and regional integration, and great powers choosing to ignore international law and impose changes through the exercise of force. Any country cannot single-handedly solve global-scale issues such as security problems, environmental concerns and economic stability. Because meaningful solutions can only be achieved through collaboration, the ability to establish trust relations with other countries is crucial. It takes a group of talented individuals to help establish meaningful trust relations in face of continuing global-scale problems, thus making those who possess a deep understanding of other countries’ culture and customs with flawless communication and problem-solving skills in high demand. CAMPUS Asia Program trains participants to become East Asian experts by providing participants the superb opportunity to learn the cultural perspective of Japan, China and South Korea and to gain expertise in public policy and international relations. By providing opportunities to witness the realities of the three East Asian countries, participants gain practical skills that cannot be achieved by studies alone. The Program is also designed to establish an environment where the top-class students from Japan, China and South Korea will interact with one another. We envision a future where CAMPUS Asia students will create a network that will positively contribute to the global society.
