The GCOE group met Dr. Shigeru Fukushima (VP, Office of Int’l Affairs), Dr. Ananda Kumara (Dean, Department of Foreign Studies), Dr. Mami Futagami (Prof. , Foreign Studies), Dr. Ge Hanbin (Prof., Structural Eng’g) and the staff of the Office of Student Affairs and Dept. of Foreign Studies.
Based on the meeting Meijo U is proposing that DLSU accept Meijo U students enrolled in their new program on Foreign Studies which will start on April 2016 for short exchange program with activities such as English Lessons, OJT, Practicum and/or, Community Engagement. This exchange program aims to develop the English proficiency and communication and people skills of the students and expand their knowledge on the culture, government and education of a foreign country like the Philippines. Other possible activities will be faculty and student exchange on research in civil engineering, mathematics and other fields where Meijo U has expertise.
