ICU was one of the first universities in Japan to announce switching to online learning in response to the COVID-19 crisis. JICUF is supporting ICU by covering ICU’s Zoom license fee for a year. To learn how online learning has been going so far, we interviewed Professor Insung Jung.
Mr. Shinichi Hirabayashi graduated from the College of Liberal Arts in 1963 and the Graduate School of Public Administration in 1965. He was the President of the ICU Alumni Association of the Americas in the early 2000s and currently resides in Connecticut. We are excited to share his story.
JICUF has two coordinators based in Turkey to help promote the Syrian Scholars Initiative. Nadine Jamous and Abulhadi Hanifeh play a crucial role in our program.
